"We did not ask to be here and yet...
Here we are,
with the sun rising to greet our face daily
as if there were something so magnificent
about our existence that it could not help
So I hope you know just how much you belong here.
And how your light contributes to the radiance of it all."
Carl Jung once said that most men never find God because they do not look low enough. It is the poet's job to leave not even the smallest grain of sand unturned. By becoming intimate with the human experience, poets distill meaning from the grand and the banal until all of life becomes a nourishing force. And we are all invited to the banquet.
This is what it means to be a dancer:
to let your heart speak before you have words.
Beauty is as much a human need as food or shelter.
If it were not so, we would have no use for art.
