“All the ills of mankind, all the tragic misfortunes that fill the history books, all the political blunders, all the failures of the great leaders have arisen merely from a lack of skill at dancing” ―Molière

Dance Me to the End of Love, said the author, Leonard Cohen, was inspired by a horrific wartime image. With peace in mind, we join muses, magi and all sublime graces, dancing to the end of war.

  1. This is just lovely, CES. Each frame flows into the next one like dancers entering stage right, twirling, then exiting stage left as other dances enter. I copied your Nietzsche quote to use as a signature on my emails. I danced in a ballet company in my youth and in a jazz company as a young adult. My heart beats dance so this post was so inspirational to me. Your graphics are so fluid, especially the one that illustrated the Bashu haiku and the one that illustrated your dervish poem – and I really liked that poem as well. What a great way to encourage peace and the end to war through dancing.
