Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Folding my life
In a small suitcase

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  7. When the suitcase is opened, will your life emerge joyously (as from a children’s popup book) or mope like a sweaty shirt? Maybe there will be a sequel?
