Using the arts to create more connected communities as we age

Dance for the Love of Jim

Dance for the Love of Jim

Jim’s Stowell Associates homecare manager invited us to meet him.
Jim carries the outdoors inside him
Indoors he can barely contain himself
He is eager to walk
To feel wind, hear water

We asked him, How Does Water Move?
He selected a piece of driftwood from his collection
And danced
for 30 minutes
rolling worn wood over water
fluid motion
tossing wood to his wife Fran
and back

The artists learned the dance
returning to share it with Fran
In the garden that Jim created
on a sunny, October afternoon

Would you like to join us? we asked Fran
Would you like to name it?
Yes. Yes.
Dance, for the Love of Jim

Would you like to join our team?
