The Mask

 

The Mask
tragicmask

 

 

Always a mask

Held in the slim hand whitely

Always she had a mask before her face —

 

Truly the wrist

Holding it lightly

Fitted the task:

Sometimes however

Was there a shiver,

fingertip quiver,

Ever so slightly —

Holding the mask?

 

For years and years and years I wondered

But dared not ask

And then —

I blundered,

Looked behind the mask,

To find

Nothing —

She had no face.

 

She had become

Merely a hand

Holding a mask

With grace.

Images could describe learning to sense (feel) your head

After last nights introduction to Awareness through Movement® for TMJ, I came across this diagram on learning to draw and observed that it could describe the class I just facilitated!

The first ball could describe how we could feel the weight of our head when we pause to check in .  As we are guided in a direction of observation throughout the lesson there is the potential to begin feeling the separate parts and how they function.  For example in this class open and closing one’s jaw.  How it feels in the eyes at the end of the lesson  is completely different from how it may have felt in  the beginning!  I love this diagram that also depicts growing sensory awareness!
