Yes.  i have been negligent in my writings…so much has happened this year, these 6-8 months….so I begin where I am at this moment.

Recently, i was to post my “happening now” travels/tour to Europe – Vienna, Berlin and London–Taipei in June., my performances at in NORTHHAMPTON, WIP  first in March, and then maybe…?…???? so many question marks.!

Everything has moved around, and I have learned how to ZOOM!!! and being a novice, with an IPAD, I have often inadvertently shut myself off (smile) , or had the IPAD drop on its face with much yelling from the students (smile) “WE CAN”T SEE YOU”.. and so on.

Week 3 1/2. teaching almost everyday – Love seeing the faces and smiles, kitchens and bodies of so many beautiful people – it warms my heart and soul, and helps me to stand on my feet. Even without the energy of the bodies, feeling both connected and so far away, I am moved,- it is the highlight of my days almost 30 days. I stretch inside myself to see more specifics of the moving bodies, the deep connections. My intentions – my teachings  – grounding, being together, time for the mind to release the tension of this now we are in….friends see each other, and people from the past many many years !join with and meet new.  I feel it is so important to connect with everyone by name -and watch with great attention. The tiny important details of movement, addressing by name. It is a tiny thing but it is what humanity is – being together, being present.  92243605_10158097911959720_2738969548819529728_oI still try for my silly jokes – still works!

On the weekends I have been taking long walks along the Hudson River during my weekend “Residencies” as I work on material, and dancing. I visit my most favorite Hudson Downtown walkway. Pinky my little rides in the carrier for most of the 2-3 miles.90982788_10158061973024720_2486568008894382080_o

    dear Barbara, I met you briefly last spring, i believe it was, in Berlin at Tanzfabrik, a talk-moving about workshop with elsa wolliaston and frey faust…we were asked a question to ask a stranger, I dont remember the question but the replies. Christa told me about your marvelous online class. that I had wanted to participate in Berlin virtual easter ! But…alas…that modern technology. and my deeply analogue being, we took to long to figure it out 😀 . Now I found your England class that is BOOKED OUT! -amazing, a crowded virtual space with waiting list. I am in awe. So. please excuse me, this is me wondering if you -shall I not make into the england virtual class this weekend – do online virtual classes in new york soon or elsewhere? that i could partake in one or two times? From my kitchen table in Berlin. Sending you good wishes and strong body cells! and everlasting dance and movement, lina x
