Line was inspired by my thinking about the line of family, the line of time and the lines of the body in space. Line was created shortly after the death of my Mother. Sandra Casados, my mother, passed away suddenly from a stroke. I raced to her bedside where she would die three days later surrounded by all her children, her four sisters and several other extended family members. The shock to my body was like nothing that I had ever felt before. I’ve had two mystical experiences in this life. I call them mystical because the experience was as real as breathing in and out but the reality of what was happening could not be explained or scientifically proven. When my mother died I was holding her hand and as I watched the color of life drain from her flesh I felt an energy that I believe was her life force. That force spilled from her body like liquid from a cup. As I watched and felt the energy drain from my mother’s body I felt it move inn and through me. It was as real as an embrace, a kiss or a whisper.
I left her deathbed blown away by the experience and walked out into the desert. She had passed away while living in Bullhead City, Arizona. The early morning was bright and crisp. My eyes focused acutely and simultaneously on what felt like everything. Every spec of sand, reflection of light, and blade of sun bleached weeds were visible and holding my full attention. Then out of the air as if my mother was standing next me I heard her voice. My Mother said, “I’m nothing becoming everything.” I stood as still as the hills in the distance and watched as my mother became a part of everything. Tears rolled down my cheeks. I had been living with such enormous fear concerning my own life. When I heard her word my fear lifted and floated out and away from my body. Line is a dance about becoming free of fear. Line is always dedicated to my Beloved Mother Sandra.
