The first word that came to me from this Song was LIFE. I imagined life from beginning to end back to beginning. I immediately had an image of hands developing through the cycle of life including all different races. Listening to the music, emotionally I felt complete. I was at first contemplative then melancholic and then serene. The most beautiful pair of hands for me, were the ones beginning & closing the video. They belong to a man named Burt who Ed (Filmmaker) and I met at “The Sage Room” (the gay & lesbian community center in the west village). Burt was very reluctant to participate in the dance but Ed opened him up and made him feel loved and safe and said “Of course you want to be a part of this.” For me, Burt’s hands captured the beauty of the life cycle in my image.
