“I am the joy in change and movement.” – Steve’s statement of identity from a Transformations School of Spiritual Psychology exercise.
I have always loved dancing, although I don’t always love change and movement in other areas of my life. My problem as a dancer has always been that I’m too cerebral and not as intuitive and fluid as I’d like to be, especially when learning someone else’s choreography. When I “freestyle”, I think I do better. It has to do with allowing yourself to open up and be unconcerned whether you’re “doing it right”, to just go with the flow of feeling and response. It feels fabulous to let myself move to music! I get a great sense of my biology and my emotions – and it gives my brain a much needed rest!
So what images come to mind when thinking of movement and freedom?
Water, clouds, wind, birds and bodies.
Lots of movement, lots of memories.
Indeed! Thanks for stopping by!
I especially enjoyed the shot of your feet in the water and of the milkweed floss. I love milkweed in all its stages.
Maybe you’re part Monarch? 🙂
Fun collection. I almost included my toes in the surf photo , too…great minds 🙂
A delicious way to feel the movement of those tickling bubbles!

Hmmm, “I am the joy in change and movement” – worth repeating as I do those Feldencrais exercises I’ve been putting off! Thanks, Scilla.
Had to look that one up – awareness and mindfulness about movement. Sounds like a good idea!
And you too! 🙂
