Adjectives on the Typewriter

she moves her words like a prizefighter

Can't think of a title at the moment...

...but I've decided to return to the blog anyway.

Had a wonderful dance class today- BJ (best friend), Abbi (little sister of 10 years), and I arrived at the studio early and since I have the key, we got the heat and the music going and worked on revising and updating some old choreography. About 2-3 years ago, we choreographed and performed a little dance to "May it Be" from The Fellowship of the Ring soundtrack. Anyway, that was back when I had only taken a year of ballet and was very...shall we say...unadvanced. So now we're working it out on pointe and trying to speed it up/complicate it a bit. Even though we didn't get very far (neither of us really remembers the old choreography now), we had an excellent class with Kitri- the teacher- since she's teaching us another piece for recital. Slightly more modern and more brisk than "May it Be," and still a great deal of fun to rehearse. It's more "theatrical" somehow; BJ kills Abbi and me in a sword fight :)

Now of course I'm listening to track 18 from The Fellowship so that I can really get a feel for the music before I add any new dance steps. I would type in the lyrics, but then again they're not very true or beautiful. A lot of rot about "believe and you will find your way..." Maybe I'll think of another song to write in here. How about "Remember Me" from Troy? It's sort of a funeral dirge though...

"Remember- I will still be here,
As long as you hold me
In your memory.
Rememeber- when your dreams have ended,
Time can be trascended...
Just remember me.

I am the one star that keeps burning
So brightly- it is the last light
To fade into the rising sun.
I'm with you as long as you tell my story,
For I am all I've done.

Remember- I will still be here,
As long as you hold me
In your memory.
Remember me.

I am that one voice in the cold wind
That whispers- and if you listen
You'll here me call across the sky.
As long as I still can reach out and touch you,
Then I...will never die.

Remember- I'll never leave you
If you will only
Remember me.

Remember- I will still be here
As long as you hold me
In your memory.
Remember- when your dreams have ended
Time can be transcended.
I live forever.

Remember me.
Remember me.

Remember me."

There, now you have a song. But the words don't truly capture the power of the song as a whole- you'd have to hear it to know what I'm talking about. Oh well.

Why be upset about the melancholy of a song? It is, after all, part of the "bellezza" of the whole thing.

In all honesty, I'm not (nor was I) upset about the song. And it's not melancholy. I guess it was "cathartic" (that's Mr. Collender's word for it anyhow).

Hmm. I'll have to look that up. I've never heard that term.
