member of:Observers of the Interdependence of Domestic Objects and Their Influence on Everyday Life


This group has been active for a long time and has already made some remarkable assertions which render life simpler from the practical point of view. For example, I move a pot of green color five centimeters to the right, I push in the thumbtack beside the comb and if Mr. A (another adherent like me) at this moment puts his volume about bee-keeping beside a pattern for cutting out vests, I am sure to meet on the sidewalk of the avenida Madero a woman who intrigues me and whose origin and address I never could have known...

  3. Lovely... she's very good!

    I started learning belly dancing when I was younger... a woman my mother knew was teaching me for free because she needed extra people to fill out her troupe for touring. It was so tricky thinking of all my body parts as separate, so they could move separately and with their own rhythms. I wish I'd been able to keep on with it, but the woman teaching me had a sort of family emergency and stopped dancing.

    The woman is brilliant. I feel like she could be a snake or a river, a cloud or a sand dune.
