Mira has been pulled into dancing in a way that she never imagined, a way so natural, that there was no thought or planning involved, more of a falling into an activity as comfortable as breathing and as enlivening too.

Watching birds from her boat, imagining the sensations of flight, she apprehends that birds in flight are not just moving from place to place but are carried joyfully on drafts and currents, negotiating the dynamic play of feather and muscle carving air, trimming alignment to release into graceful flight in concert with consorting neighbors.

Mira likes to listen to physicists talk about the very vast and the teeny tiny and when she heard cosmologist and dark energy specialist, Sean Carroll speak about particles as fields and not particles at all - well it is just plain liberating. No longer contained within a particular structure, she feels free to spread wide and flow with the fields that surround, contain, and yes murmurate with her.

Mira wondered if there even is such a thing as aloneness with everything so clearly interconnected and interdependent ... yet at the same time she is aware that her experience is unique, that there cannot be any other perspective in the universe the same as hers.

An enigma of co-arising interdependent yet exclusive experiences..

In dance comes a whole body connection with another in service of a co-created evanescent project, a momentary dance. And she began to notice after starting to do partner dance that this connection is more than the sum of its parts.

When a whole person is available, the possibility of meaningful connection is not just about the partner. It includes connecting with her complete self and being surprised at how she is moved by this coalescing into an intelligence beyond previous knowing.

Does this explain the obsession?

She loves bones and their configurations, muscles that animate, and connective tissue that binds and organizes. Yet the very development of this structure, never mind its enlivening are unresolved mysteries.

The self organized patterning of birds in flight inspires. Is there a murmuration field? Is there a dance field?

All this talk about movement and dance needs music so here is a beautiful song with painted visuals. Thank you to Cafe Anatolia and Anna dg for this video performance of Loreena McKennit's, Tango to Evora. Don't know the painter. Anyone care to dance? You know where to find me.
