IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO SAY YES...
We give thanks for singers.
All types of singers.
Popular, concert singers and
tuneless singers in the bath.
Whistlers, hummers and those
who sing while they work.
Singers of lullabies; singers of nonsense
and small scraps of melody.
Singers on branches and rooftops.
Morning yodellers and evening warblers.
Singers in seedy nightclubs, singers in the street;
Singers in cathedrals, school halls, grandstands,
back yards, paddocks, bedrooms, corridors,
stairwells and places of echo and resonance.
We give praise to all those who give some small voice
To the everyday joy of the soul.
Sarah is a graceful dancer based in Sydney. She dances in a form called Hilal dance. Sarah recently attended workshops in Australia by Suraya, the founder of Hilal Dance, these images by Sarah were created at that time.
Suraya based her workshop on the dances and movement done at the Moulid (religous festivals) traditions so it was inspired by sufi and other more African ritual like dance movements. But is wasnt "sufi" as such- just inspired by it movement-wise.
Liu and I decide to record a daily art offering each day for one month after which time we will show each other. The idea is to stimulate each others creativity by the daily practice. It is not meant to be an arduous task but instead it should be entirely manageable, perhaps no more a a few minutes each day.
I have reproduced some of my offerings in this blog.
I invite you to participate in your own version of Daily Offerings to add to this Register.
