As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
Figure skaters Adam Rippon, Mirai Nagasu, Alex , Maia Shibutani and all members of team USA, totally captured my attention, and as the artists, or the creative minds would truly understand: we feed of this energy, it is this artistic energy that inspires us. Whilst the didn't win the Gold medal, Bronze was Gold to me. It was their stories, triumphs, and the desire to overcome obstacles that also inspired me. On the ice, we didn't see the struggle, but clean performances, that were defined by bodily symmetry, lines, structure and patterns created with the body. The synchronicity that is at the individual level required, to work with the body and the ice; as your canvas. For the couple performances, not only the capability to work with the ice, but also to work with another body. I was mesmerized by this ability to express agility, strength, but also fragility. To be able to express emotion, feelings, sensual, softness, but to remain composed shows how figure skating uses not only the body, but senses, springing from internal to the external, radiating from within, the simple push, and pull that resides within, to capture exactly how you want the audience to feel, is truly beyond words. I continue to remain in awe as bodies, souls, dance majestically, but also to be able to let go, set the self, the soul free, is completely beyond words.
The Soul Speaks: Beautiful - Proud of TEAM USA! :)
Our thoughts, to invite and inspire. With Love & kindness. :)
