Elf Salon ~ featured elf

The Elf Salon spotlights different elves from the Gallery and tells the stories of my encounters with them. It will be updated periodically, so please check back the next time you're in the neighborhood. The Salon is now featuring:

Air Dancer (Contracting)

Air Dancer (Contracting)

Boom-BOOM, boom-BOOM, boom-BOOM, boom-BOOM.

She leaps and twists to the rhythm, expanding and contracting in time to the beat of the drums. Reach and pull in, out and in, up and out, the rhythm draws her into my realm. It drives her, compels her, dances her, as she dances it.

My music of choice is rock and roll tonight. It thrills and excites her. The Dance is her calling, her passion, her raison d’etre. To move is to dance; she is ever in motion. She is a spirit of Air, embodying its beat, its pulse, its kinetic essence. She is a wave of rhythm, like heartbeat, like breath, expanding and contracting, in and out, around and through, here and not here. She ranges my studio with her dance, too quick for the eye, but accessible, somehow, to hand and brush through subtler senses. Perhaps I breathe her out and in, following her lead, my very lungs echoing her motion.

That is all. She reveals no name, no identity, no other message. She simply air-dances to the music, riding breath-like waves of rhythmic sound.

Swift breezes mark her passage.
