The beautiful, fragile bowl

Anne Dalke's picture

A very beautiful and fragile bowl, capable of holding whatever we put in it,
placed it in the center of the room.  "In an embodied way, considering the shape
and weight of these things," each of us got up, in turn, to enact-and-say what
we were setting down, what we wanted to leave in the bowl--and then, on
a second round, to demonstrate and articulate what we were carrying out. (Many
thanks to Alice Lesnick for this exercise--I found it warm, funny, and very moving.)
