From the album MP3 Version of "Um Beijo / A Kiss"
The Sacred Circle Dance meeting that I attended in June 2009 was held at the city of Embu das Artes, outside of Sao Paulo. We stayed at the 'Hotel Rancho Silvestre.' It was the Brasilian winter, and the weather was grey and wet. I jogged around the campus every morning, before most of the participants were awake, and felt the power of the forest there. I couldn't help imagining how the campus was in summer when it must swarm with vacationing people. It felt kind of sad in winter and I hope that this piece reflects that feeling, while preparing for the abundance of summer!
