MY BELIEVING BONES

Swung by the rhythms of a Yes and No,
Between the living and the dead I go.
The dance is in my bones; and though I see
That every dancing bone will cease to be,
I will believe my bones and learn to trust
My living and my dying… for I must.
Coming and going by the dance, I see
That what I am not is part of me.
Dancing is all that I can ever trust;
The dance is all I am, the rest is dust.
I will believe my bones and live by what
Will go on dancing when my bones are not.

Miscellany

Here's where I'll be in August: Crosstrail Thru Eugene campsite. Come on out for some camping and dancing!




Here's a list of mailing lists related to various folk dance forms (yes, square dancing is listed...): ListServs on Folk Dancing May 2000




Just for fun: a little drag and drop poetry.




Musical ideas for the day: today is the anniversary of the Mt. St. Helens eruption in 1980 (Blow Your Top Day). Which means it would be a good day to play Volcano (Mountain 118).

I'm sorry, but I've had to disable comments. Spambots have found the site, and I don't have time to try to figure out how to stop them. In the future, I'll probably start using some standard blogging software that I can modify to add the dance quotes. In the meantime, no comments.
