I had this strange period of days when I could not turn any music on. I was fearful. That’s the best way I can describe it. Then I did. This song came on and I felt like it broke me open again. I made this video. (It’s really best if you can view it full screen with headphones on and volume high.)
Gorgeous song by Sufjan Stevens. If the song sounds familiar, I had already used it in a video in August of 2010. Here is my older version. Please share it if you like it. Thanks!
This is a gift for my friend, Michael. If you’ve seen me dance with a guy here on the blog- that’s Michael. Some years ago, seven? Eight? I found myself at the bottom of a well, very far from myself. I wanted to dance. I emailed him and he said I could come to Amsterdam to work with him. We hadn’t seen each other in a bunch of years. Michael? You totally saved me. And you taught me everything I know about improvisation and lots about hard work and love and leaving my hair down. Happy birthday. This one’s for you.
Save Me by Aimee Mann from the Magnolia soundtrack.
