important source A sniffing dog alerts me to a seldom seen snake skeleton. It blends in so well, I would have missed it. About 4 feet long and of significant girth, I can’t find the head…hmmm…I imagine its story: it was a rattler that got too close to a house and its head got chopped off. Humans fear its head, so almost automatically, cut it off. Attack what we fear; offers an explanation for a lot of human behavior. Maybe one of those vultures I saw fanning its wings the other day, picked it up then dropped it from the tree above.
find out here I see great beauty in this creatures remains; it is… ALL…long sinuous spine. It is the vertebrate that takes the innovation of spinal column to a maximum expression, and this spine that is our common heritage, how we are related. I adore my spine and love to be quiet and take plenty of time to move it slowly in every possible way I can imagine. I learned this in an over a decade practice called Continuum Movement ( www.continuummovement.com/ ) that I credit with saving my life, taking me out of my head and discovering I had an animal body.
