If you studied dance in New York you eventually took class at the Cunningham studio (and I did). His vision for dance and music was profound and exhilarating.

Fascinating article in your link. Of course I had no idea who he was, so thanks to you I've learned something today about this groundbreaking dancer. And my goodness, what a mind he had! His ability to visualize space and movement and to retain information must have been amazing.

The true magic happens when you step away from their presence and yet they are still felt. Our wonderful mind and keen memories bring up those thoughts when the news hits us that someone has passed on. Your lucky to have had the experience...Blessed is you.
