Dancing Barefoot by Patti Smith

She is benediction
She is addicted to thee
She is the root connection
She is connecting with he
     Here I go and I don’t know why
I flow so ceaselessly
Could it be he’s taking over me
     I’m dancing barefoot
Headin’ for a spin
Some strange music draws me in
It makes me come up like some heroine
     She is sublimation
She is the essence of thee
She is concentrating on
He who is chosen by she
     Here I go when I don’t know why
I spin so ceaselessly
Could it be he’s taking over me
     I’m dancing barefoot
Headin’ for a spin
Some strange music drags me in
Makes me come up like some heroine
     She is recreation
She intoxicated by thee
She has the slow sensation that
He is levitating with she
     Here I go when I don’t know why
I spin so ceaselessly
‘Til I lose my sense of gravity
     I’m dancing barefoot
Heading for a spin
Some strange music draws me in
Makes me come up like some heroine
     Oh God I fell for you

Oh boy! Preparing new courses takes everything out of you! I prepped my courses this morning, corrected on Saturday as I have been working six days weekly since the semester has begun… and this has been gruesome and is taking its toll. Today I actually had the time to squeeze in a small drawing, made quickly and so out of tune that it came out rusty-looking -) My hand-eye coordination was simply not there. In frustration, after three different tries, I settled on this version even though it is not up to par.

However would you like to know the most amazing thing in this whole affair? I feel elated and content-)  Why is that do you think? I do not really know… but as I grow in age and wisdom (huh-huh) the process is more important than the result and in art, the process is everything. The act of drawing relaxes me like no other activity can… apart from playing music and perhaps tai chi. So just doodle away tonight or tomorrow or on the next day as it feels so good -))) Love it!
