Pictures Wanted!

Thanks to everyone who went out yesterday. It was wonderful to be able to share the moment and space with such warm and sensitive audience.

A special thanks to those of you that have emailed feedback and comments.
Your feedback is most welcome especially since this is a creative research project. Karen Bond emailed me the following exchange overheard at the performance:

4-year old girl: They're not r-e-a-l!
Dad: Yes, they are real.
Girl: But, but, they're not r-e-a-l.
Dad: Well, they ARE real.
Girl: What are they DOing?
Dad: They're...practicing.

Ron sent the following feedback:

"I really enjoyed this morning's performance! I saw a meditation on strength, suffering, static balance, dynamic balance and peace, through which the central character mastered the forces which oppressed her (represented by the branch) and moved from near bondage to freedom and mastery. I will definitely come again, with friends and family."

On another note: I was unable to photograph yesterday's performance so I am now seeking photos of the event. I saw lots of cameras there. If anyone has photos they can give me I would greatly appreciate it! I will publish them on the blog with your permission only. You can email me at

These pictures were shot by Karen Bond. That's Toshi Makihara and audiences on the left and me below.

not exactly pic, but some documentation here:

this was my camara angle.
i still remeber
i had just arrived from ny, where i worked the night before.

this first one was such a massive trip:
i was in a rock immersed in the water...i felt so fragile. the current would take me at times!
so i flew low... needed grounding.
i resonated with everything. it was so so so much beauty full stuff
so so so much information.

it was wonder full.
ripples of energies from the experience stayed with me for hours. i felt exhilariated, exhausted, full, more than satisfied, humbled, trippy, happy... and the list goes on!

it was my first time branching @ the wissahickon and i had a blast.
