“Wherever a dancer stands is holy ground.” – Martha Graham

The world is extremely interesting to a joyful soul.
Alexandra Stoddard, Gracious Living in a New World 

Though there are swamps and thick melancholy on earth, whoever has light feet runs even over mud and dances as on swept ice. —Friedrich Nietzsche, from This Spoke Zarathustra

I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world
I may not complete this last one
but I give myself to it.

I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and still I don’t know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?

~ Rilke
