Sometimes another person's thoughts and words describe a person better than they can describe themself. Martha Graham, forty-seven years ago, painted an accurate picture of who I am as both person and dancer. I guess it is no surprise that a dancer can best convey the sentiments of another dancer. It is, after all, who we are.
"I am a dancer. I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living...in each it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one's being, a satisfaction of spirit. One becomes in some area an athlete of God."
~~Martha Graham, c.1953
