still simmering, the morning after yesterday
little heart murmers
strings & pulls.
a few days ago an Authentic Movement class was cancelled
i suddenly realized i could pick Anja up from her nature program
and _make_ it to Todd Thomas Brown‘s not-so-private art studio opening.
i didn’t think too much about it
just had the grit to make it happen,
and the 5-6 hours driving yesterday to pull it off
was totally worth it.
i feel lucky to have slipped in, last minute, to the Guillermo Gomez-Pena performance art workshop Stephanie Sherman organized, which is where i met Todd. several people from that workshop, as well as from the Illusion/Anna Halprin worlds, were there last night.
i am getting a taste of a world i feel ‘right’ in.
people actively living and doing art – often in multiple media – and within community.
these people i am meeting are all an hour away in the e. bay or SF
but i am grateful to know them.
they give me a taste of what is possible
of what i feel drawn to and nourished and excited by.
i am grateful we are homeschooling
i am grateful i have anja
and that she is now of an age – and i am lucky enough she is of a personality-
that makes it possible to do days like yesterday.
she had very luckily taken a 2 hour nap beforehand
and we had rested up, showered/bathed, stretched our legs at Ahgon & Ahma’s house (which very luckily was only 8 min. away from Todd’s studio).
so, all in all, we were lucky.
and here are 2 of the smaller art pieces anja and i liked that we flirted with getting.
it will be an ongoing dance: continuing to do things, go to events, meet people i feel drawn to within our family/homeschooling life. and, how incredible for anja to be hobnobbing with artists in SF til 10pm at night instead of in bed for school the next day.
