Composing with curved, glistening grasses

9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. I stand atop a hill at Prajna, looking out over this wide, sweeping valley. The abundant rains last night have weighed the tall grasses with glistening droplets. The dance begins with the lilting curves of the grass and generates a composition of movements to the insistent hum of the bees, and the buzz of the flies alighting curiously on surfaces. The hummingbird moths zoom past with their machinic hum, and the sounding birds swim with distinct strokes through the warm air.  My feet are soaked in the tall, wet grasses and wildflowers. The hot morning sun burns off the moisture when it ducks out from behind billowing clouds. The dance takes in this world, moves with and is moved by it.
