MOVED BY MOVEMENT
Our bodies carry all that we are. Our bodies are also intertwined with who we are. Part of us. When we move, we move all that we are. Our movements are a spoken language transformed from within us through our bodies. Everything within us moves with us. Sometimes others move us. What moves us has an impact. Because we are people. With bodies. And our bodies are not just a surface. It is layered. Like our soul. Every part. Every particle of us is essential for us to be us. When we move, we change, we grow, we transform. Always. Every day is different. As is every movement. Every moment. Different. And by some miracle I am still me. There are parts within me that makes me who I am. Something that roots me. I need my roots. To feel my feet. To know that I am planted. That I am growing. That regardless of all the changes, some things still remain. A secret in my heart. A love that never fails. Yes. I believe this. And I will hold on to it, like I will hold on to my feet. I will take care of my feet. As I walk. Failing, succeeding. It doesn’t really matter. As long as I can keep my secrets. The hope. The hope that grows when shared. Yes. I will keep that. And then I will allow the change. The change of movement. Knowing that despite all the changes, my body still carries me and my secrets. And I only have one. One changing body. I only need one. I will carry my body like it carries me. With strength. With hope. And I will share my secrets. Through my movement. Allowing the change. Being moved by movement.
