Where’s the Where?
Beijing, China, 2007
It’s a year before the Beijing Olympics and there are crowds and pollution everywhere. I’ve been invited to teach the LDTX Bejing Modern Dance Company, the Joffrey Ballet of China. I’m 60 years old and I haven’t danced in over 30 years. What am I going to do?
“Figure it out,” says that jackal trickster, Travel. “Improvise! Isn’t that your specialty?”
“Thanks, a lot, Travel. I will”!
And so I do… as along the way, I ask myself… and my listeners, “Why travel?” Why leave the comfort and familiarity of home? For a change of scenery and pace? For rest and relaxation? To stretch your boundaries? For some new food? Or for something else?
Listen HERE — to mull it over… and to be entertained.
Enjoy and Happy Trails….
