The indigenous people understood one thing.
That when we move with the elements,
We embrace all of our fears simply as waves and ripples in the ocean;
We celebrate our joys and witness our grief
Through the deliberate embodiment of all these waves and ripples inside of our body
And uninhibited expressions through our body.
Within the Leaf is the entire terroir in which She grew up.
Within the Leaf are the four seasons.
The raindrops and snowdrops.
The sunlight, moonlight and starlight.
Within our body too is the entire terroir in which we grew up
Waiting for us
To come home.
