What can YOU say in six sentences?
The room is stifling as we are bodies in motion- moving, contorting… reaching for peace. We are on the floor, as the lower half of our bodies make a heart-shaped shadow in the sun's morning light; squatting, we lean into our thighs, with our palms planted firmly on the mat between our legs, extending our limbs- shins kissing triceps, for the crane pose. I am alone in my suspension, a master in this moment; control is temporarily within my grasp while I maintain my height, keeping a safe distance above the ground.
Nerves are raw and pulses quicken as our instinct to choose the fight or flight option is interrupted by a CT scan, EEG and an MRI, a predetermined flight plan is grounded; we must stay and fight.
We fight for normalcy and balance in this battle of worry where the primary weapon is the unknown; I hope to win outside of the walls of my studio... I need to win for him.
