Joy. That’s all.
It would be so easy to wallow again today. To stay in bed, stunned and bemused. It’s heart breaking. But, actually this should propel us to fight harder. As the Women’s Equality Party said in their email this morning “this brings a greater urgency to our work”. It brings a greater urgency to just being. Being human beings. So each of us, in our small way, can go out and face today with a positive spirit. The sum is greater than its parts. Share love, joy, togetherness and an inclusive spirit today. Hug people don’t hate them. Smile & connect. I’m not saying it’s easy. Far from it. But i’ll give it my best shot. As I head out into Woolwich to work in the library today, surrounded by a new community (new to me), that is more diverse than anywhere I’ve lived before, I’m so grateful. It keeps me grounded. It reminds me what it is to be human, keeping the values of being human at the heart of who we are and what we do. These values are what underpin the work of community dance artists. I’m not perfect by any means, and I hope I’m Not being too preachy. I just want to send some love into the world today. That’s all.
A new blog site to collect my projects, thoughts, writing, teaching, personal philosophies about this and that.
