Ten of Pentacles

I dance with a group of about eighty fellow dancers twice weekly at  Embody: Santa Fe's ecstatic dance community.  The music follows a wave from flowing to staccato, chaos through lyrical to stillness. A journey of the soul through the expressions of the physical body. The endorphins pulsing through the room are palpable and expressed non-verbally through dance. As the dance becomes more ecstatic the feeling of oneness expands and love and joy and bliss overflow.

One evening I danced for inspiration for my painting the Ten of Pentacles. As I lay in stillness to the vibration of gongs I realized that I had just experienced the Ten of Pentacles - a complete journey through the physical realm - I felt exquisite gratitude for life in this body.
