An Ode to Primary

by Joanna D.

The solidity of Primary. It’s illusive beauty shadowed by the powerful stimulation and desire for second and third – intermediate and advanced. A beginners series. Overlooked.

In truth it’s beauty is old and wise.

Primary guides the way. It’s the gates and the foundation. It generates dynamism and enriches volumes of rhythmic breath.

In its one-hundered-percent effort it is grace, it is patience, it is bhakti.
