Falling asleep to a sever thunderstorm and waking up to sunshine. I enjoy that about Texas.

Performing “Pain(s)taking” at Texas Dance Improvisation Festival, hosted by Texas Christian University, with Bethany Nelson and Megan Yankee.
I bought this backpack this past June from Mauerpark flea market in Berlin. I noticed the writing on the inside flap right away, but didn’t really look at it until yesterday. It is the address of Ole Lorenzen (and possibly his phone number as well). He lived in Hamburg. I looked at his street from Google Maps. I wonder if he still lives there… and if he is German.. There is...
The main studio at Ponderosa, where I spent 5 weeks of my summer. Dancing, sweating, learning, meeting, questioning, wondering, performing, watching. Stolzenhagen, Germany… a small tiny village without a post office, grocery store, or train station. Only animals, the Polish boarder, fields, homes, and dance.

Chelsea from the High Line, an old train track turned into a walkway/garden. Runs from 12th ish street to 30th ish street on the far west side.
New York City! Walking walking walking walking…

“While it is perfectly logical to assume that life began before ritual, theatre, and performance - and therefore that these practices respond to life - perhaps it is useful to entertain the possibility that life was ‘invented’ in order to respond to art, theatre, ritual, and performance.” - Peggy Phelan in her article about performance artist, Marina Abramovic
Today is the first Friday since quitting my job at the wine bar that I have had to myself :) I watched the sun go down from Jupiter Coffee House on The Square
Streams Of Consciousness: a flow of thoughts and images which may not always appear to have a coherent structure… may weave in and out of time and place… narrative mode… a loosely formatted babble of thoughts… interior monologue… I’m choreographing a duet this semester using this idea.

A house in my neighborhood
Look at all that open space for me to bike on.
Today is my 23rd birthday. And there’s no better way to celebrate than with coffee, fried plantains and treats from a local bakery :)
Ink in November
In addition, I, too, was also thinking about redundancy as well. Tambien, etc.
A couple days late, but Happy Halloweenie!
A few things on Dentonites (Dentoners?): -Once it hits 55 degrees F, bring out the snow clothes! -We’re sinking :( Foundations, foundations. Crooked kitchen and fussy door frames. -It’s y’all and y’alls. And (apparently) there ain’t no better way to say it.
Paschall Bar. One of the oldest buildings in Denton: 1877.

low evening light on the square, Denton TX
In my Improvisation class we were given a score: to shake for 1 hour. And we did. Heads, legs, quivers, full body, loose control, hands, muscles sliding around bone. It was pretty crazy. One girl fell asleep afterward.
Recycled Book. On the square, Denton, TX.
I just saw, on the street, a British style double-decker bus, selling fish ‘n chips from its insides, open daily. In Denton?! Rad. Wish I had my camera on me.
