Konverjdans and Putnam County Dance Showcase - 08/11/19

Made the farewell pilgrimage to Cafe Tibet recently. Sad news. The lovely space was renovated as of
January 1, 2019. New Management. New Menu. All the old charm is gone. Good news is that I
caught a waitress I knew from the 6-7 years I ate lunch there, before she moves back to
Nepal next month. Currently, I'm meditating on the reality of impermanence.

Given a long term spiritual quest, I love when Pagans say 'everyone is getting off' on the magic of their
practice. So that probably is one of my primary motivations now, in addition to helping others who
witness the Kickstarter Project work to 'get off' too. ( Or to feel deeply inspired by the work. )

Our only hope is that 'saving grace' is actually so much more versatile than we could ever imagine it
to be, while still remaining both profound and genuine? ---Nicholas Croft

During a performance, the dancer displays their listening practice through their movement practice in
public. For the audience witnessing a dance, the music becomes more alive, more startlingly
vivid and engaging, as a consequence. Both the dancer and the audience look actively
in the same direction together: To the experience of the music. ---Nicholas Croft

Your art kind of changes as you get older, by nature of the fact that you're hopefully gaining
wisdom and you're starting to watch things with a better overview. ---Sheryl Crow

That's the great thing about entering a convent: There are things that you simply can't do,
so you don't have to worry about them. ---Lars von Trier

I shared a super pleasant conversation with Nani the High School Intern @ The Hudson Valley Museum of
Contemporary Art this afternoon. She understands very well the difference between small town
living in a city like Peekskill and the big time social concerns of a major art museum.

A Visitation of the Fawns again today in the Croft Family Home back yard, but my sister Meri
scolded me: 'Don't let them get used to you Nicholas. They are in the wild and people are not to be
trusted. You don't want to confuse their survival skills by making them think people are safe.'
