I recently applied to participate in a dance workshop in Canada.  As part of the application I created a reel of highlights of my performance and choreography.  Sadly, I was not chosen for the workshop (rejection is hard!) but I was left with this great retrospective of past projects.  

Sometimes I feel like I'm not doing or creating anything beautiful or important in this world, but having this reel is a reminder of the things I've done. These projects would not be so stunning if it hadn't been for the vision and skill of my collaborators.  If there is one thing I have realized about myself as an artist, it is that I am not an island! My art is truly made richer by those I have had the privilege of exploring with, and for that I am truly grateful.
