Dear Tatjana, Thank you for your generous and insightful sharing. We look forward to hearing more about your explorations. I'd enjoy hearing you develop this thought further: " using elementary forms of expression without feeling the pressures of being judged or of performing." and " I didn't have to worry about technique at any point. There was a natural flow in every action that was liberating." Another time soon, I hope. Glenn
Thanks Heath and Christine- I appreciate your observation of the conspicuous omission. Another angle on the same theme is the reluctance of teachers to share publicly what they say privately. Some say they are not being treated with the same consideration they are being asked to give to the kids. The teachers know much more about the problems than we can discuss in a group so open. Future conferences need to create safe places for our teachers to share what's really on their minds. After all, they are the active ingredient in whatever medicine we make; by whatever name we call it. Without them at their best, we don't have a chance.

Someday tech companies like Google and Apple will be asking to interview those who have excelled in improvisation and composition. The demand for these problem solving and creative skills in the marketplace is the survivor's alternative to a world of automation and robotics. We have a lot to offer the world if we look closely at what it is asking for. Bravo Ayriole Frost.
