my so-called life

Danse Serpentine - Loie Fuller

and I must borrow every changing shape to find expression...dance, dance

By dancing and emulating the macrocosmic creative dance of Siva, the whirling of the planets or the dance of the atoms, man actively incorporates the creative vibrations and ordering movements of the cosmos. His body becomes the universe, his movements its movements, and when these are harmonious, then he is not only in harmony with himself, but with the universe which he has become. - Jill Purce
