There is much beauty in the motion of life.
A dance which glides, sometimes falters, in the daily motion and flow of heart and mind.

Choice to be made in each moment about approach and engagement.

Slow and steady, short and syncopated, or a simple sample of all styles.
Within is the capacity of unlimited nature.
