Preparing to dance, I reach out with my sense-antennas. I scan the distance, listening through my body. I smell, I observe and I notice. I gently touch my partner. We get closer.
We drop into the meeting of our skins and begin to flow into and through one another. Softly spreading along this permeable boundary, our breathing begins to expand and to relax too.
I feel a pull towards the dark caverns of our bodies – our deeper intimacy. I turn to my inner eye and bodily knowing that sees in the dark. I begin to track, not only the shapes our bodies make but where the movement starts.
I close my eyes, and trusting, I open to receive that, which only a minute ago I perceived as Other. I see my heart is the field of infinite possibility..
Receiving has now become giving, and at that point, our dance, a flight – a flight into what is joyfully unknown!
