"I have seen many marvels, and participated in many miracles."

Dear Friends,

A Handbook for Ecstatic Survival..
and so –
WOW!
It is done!!
(Well, ‘done’ - as much as anything we create is ever ‘done’)
But
I’ve seen it!

Michael Caplan's House of ShAkE has again been a miracle worker.
Mostly my photos –
texts on themes
(and not just for dancers)
I want it to be an ambassador for Art & for the act of creation.

Handbook is as subjective as possible –
a stone thrown into a pond, hoping to make waves? No.
It is actually me, diving in the dark, wanting to explore the depths I’ve found in dance and in Life.

In wanting to lift the present ban on beauty, and the 2000 year-old ban on pleasure, I have described my own summoning of a light, to take to every corner of my consciousness.

 - David
