    Absolutely. Such powerful imagery!

  2. Thank you, Diana!

    TT, This piece of loveliness took my breath away! So true–release into the ground, gravity, the fall. In answer to your question, about an hour ago, repeatedly at dance rehearsal :). Rock on. xoxo

  4. So that means you’re going for it in the dance studio! Good for you, ST! Being good at falling is a true skill. One that I’m still working on. xoxo

    To live is to risk falling–it is as natural as gravity.

    Literally, I will fall again on Wednesday…more trapeze lessons. (I *will* catch that Straddle Whip this time!) Metaphorically, I’ve been falling for months now, working on a business idea. Interestingly, I’m not sure which one of those is scarier to me…

  7. Yes! Completely natural, and part of the process. Thanks, eM!

    Great post, Tamina!

    i really like your pictures

  10. I think the literal falling helps prepare for the metaphorical falling. It’s that practice of losing balance /control and then recovering / getting back up with grace (or as much possible).
    And I know you’ll catch the straddle whip this time–Have fun!

  11. Thank you!

  12. Thank you!

    Is that second image from the end one of you, TT? In the harness? You really may want to check out an aerial dance class…some dancer friends of mine have been fascinated by that as well. Let me know if you do it–would like to hear your perspective! Xo

  14. Ah, I’ve been spotted! Yes, that one is me. I will most definitely keep you posted on my next adventure in motion! xoxo
