2014  Land of mysoil

Victimhoodis a kind of mass delusion that has taken hold of previously, responsiblesector of our culture. We must not negate practice for the sake of theory butthe unity of both.

2011 Let me worship my Lord (work in progress)

Dance is a journey from one stage, the earthy/ physical, to another, the spiritual/ celestial. Its aim of worship is to achieve a communion with a powerful but intangible force. Dance serves to bridge the chasm between this world and the other, between the deity and its worshipers. It becomes the anchor point between a high point of human creative perception and the sacred.

Puo ya Ka "My language"

Being able to speak my language gives me the freedom create, construct, wonder and venture. In order to understand the meaning of dialogical practice we have to put aside the simplistic understanding of dialogue as a mere technique. Dialogue does not represent a somewhat false path that I attempt to elaborate on and realize in the sense of involving the ingenuity of the other. On the contrary dialogue characterizes an epistemological relationship. I engage in a dialogue not because I like the person. I engage in dialogue because I recognize the social and not merely the individual character of the process of knowing. Dialogue presents itself as an indispensable component of the process of both learning and knowing. We must not negate practice for the sake of theory but the unity of both. Victimhood is a kind of mass delusion that has taken hold of previously responsible sector of our culture. Let’s all be involved in the awareness and understanding of Autism.

Color of my Soul: Red

Colors activate our energies, stimulate our appetites, and Our attraction to them is as basic as the newborn baby's attraction to the nipple, which it depends on for food and survival. Colors also directly affect human emotions, feelings, moods, and behaviors.
