ever since the day i joined this cloud appreciation society, i have seen very few interesting clouds. i know they are out there, but i don’t always have the presence of mind to witness them. and the ones that are remarkable enough for me to try to capture with my iPhone camera, i can never quite capture. and i end up deleting them. the photos, not the clouds. there are so many things that are beyond my capacity to capture, to describe, to transmit, to decode.
i’ve started to work on a new performance, my first attempt at directing other performers in 2 years. i am not sure if i can convey this, but i see parallels between my attempts to capture the clouds or the moon, and my attempts to describe to my performers how i would like them to perform. both seem slightly just beyond my reach. not that i will stop trying to reach them. what else am I here for?
