Preschool Musical


Watch this. Now. If you know what's good for you. This is so amazing. And the kids won't even know how awesome it is. "Stop sustaining that note!" I love it!

The Lonesome Wave

There is an island
In the middle of my heart,
And all day comes lapping on the shore
A long silver wave.
It is the lonesome wave;
I cannot see the other side of it.
It will never go away
Until it meets the glad gold wave
Of happiness!

Wandering over the monstrous rocks,
Looking into the caves,
I see my island dark, all cold,
Until the gold wave sweeps in
From a sea deep blue,
And flings itself on the beach.
Oh, it is joy, then!
No more whispers like sorrow,
No more silvery lonesome lapping of the long wave . . .

Thank you, Ms. Graham

"There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others." -Martha Graham

Je suis moi

~I do not like my food touching on my plate.
~Every lipstick I have ever used has ended up in a very odd shape no matter what preventative measures I take.
~The heart rate monitors on excercise machines never work for me.
~I don't like men in capris.
~I don't think people should talk to each other while one or both are in a bathroom stall. If someone does this to me, I can't answer them.
~If you are a solo artist, don't use a band name.
~I have very dramatic imaginary conversations with people when I am alone.
~I like looking at houses and imagining what their inhabitants are like.
~I want to live in a converted warehouse.
~I sometimes have dreams in black and white.
~I am happiest when it is raining.
~I think water is one of the most beautiful things about the earth.
~I have deja vu almost every day.
~Sometimes I think I was supposed to be born in another era.
~The people I envy the most are those who can get all of the beautiful things in their head out into the world.
~I think we would all understand each other better if we could break into song whenever words weren't enough. And if a song wasn't enough, then we would dance. And everyone around us would dance with us.
