Inspiration from the Global Village

''Today we all speak, if not the same tongue, the same universal language. There is no one center, and time has lost its former coherence: East and West, yesterday and tomorrow exist as a confused jumble in each one of us. Different times and different spaces are combined in a here and now that is everywhere at once.''

Octavio Paz (b. 1914), Mexican poet. "Invention, Underdevelopment, Modernity," Alternating Current (1967).

Misty Copeland: An Unlikely Ballerina's Story

Inspiration from the Global Village

I remember the first time I stood on the stage at the Metropolitan Opera House. I was nineteen years old, still struggling to find my place in ABT's corps de ballet. I traced the marley floor with my pointe shoes and imagined myself on the stage, not as a member of the corps, but as principal dancer. It felt right. It felt like a promise: someday, somehow, it was going to happen for me.

 

A decade later, I am here, waiting for the moment when I will explode onto the stage in a burst of red and gold [as Firebird]...

 

This is for the little brown girls.

Righteous Call

A woman

takes time to see

what is needed

what it takes to 

achieve

and quick as that

she either

does it

climbs

bends

lifts

carries

rises

or

she doesn't

 

A woman 

thinks about her

place in the fabric

beloveds in the fray

and after agonizing

contemplation

she either

moves

brings

gets

understands

cares

gives

or 

she doesn't

 

A woman

makes a difference

in all that she does

every moment of

her life

and with righteous power

she either

dreams

wakes

fights

works

changes

loves

or she doesn't.
