The Weekly Post

This week it's from Selene Colburn's blog Word Blur. Selene is a dancer — and also a librarian, hence the title of her blog. In the post I picked, she describes a dream of inadequacy. From Whippet good:

Last night I had a dream that I was performing street theater in some unknown town that hosted an MFA performance program. A bunch of students were watching. I was invited to give a lecture/demonstration at their school.  When I showed up in the corriders of the Art Building a girl who recongnized me from the street came up to greet me.

"You're performance was..."  I prepared myself for the accolades.  "Three-quarters bullshit."

"It was a whippet of snip-snobbery," she concluded.

You can read more on her blog, or on the Letters to the Editors page of this week's Seven Days.

I like this post because Selene is actually a fantastic dancer. I'm not a dance fan, but I loved her performance Devotional Clusters; she did that at the Flynn Mainstage a few years back. Selene is working on a new piece, The History of the Future, and she's still looking for volunteers to participate. You don't have to be a dancer to take part. Rehearsals are on Sunday afternoons. Check it out.
