The Count Down

If I Should Fall

“Would you swallow me deep inside??  River, oh river, river running deep, bring me something that will let me get to sleep.”

Those lyrics are from what I think is the saddest song I have heard.  It is called The Washing of the Water by Peter Gabriel.  Not only does he convey depression with the song, he makes you feel it with his voice.  I want to cry every time I hear it.  Brilliant!!  I discovered it when I went to a dance recital in Kent awhile back.  There were many performances and so many different kinds of expression but this is the one I remember. 

 The choreographer was trying to express depression through dance.  Mission accomplished!!  The sadness that came off the stage was like a wave that fell over the auditorium.  Such talent and art.  I would love to be able to convey emotion through dance that strongly.  It was like magic.  It was truly moving.  Even thinking about it and hearing that song today moves me again years later.

Anyway, back to the regularly scheduled body and practice updates.  The last two days have been busy but good days.  I am healed.  I have been practicing for a show that is tomorrow night.  It is workshop and show with Isidora B.  The B stand for a long name.  🙂  Jez = lazy blogger.  I don’t want to look up the spelling nor do I want to spell it incorrectly.  I don’t seem to have a problem typing four sentences to explain that all though.  This is me.  Take me as I am!!

I practiced another hour and got some things done.  Next week I want to get back to my daily Suhaila classes.

243.5 down, 121.5 to go!!!
