The unedited interview with Tami Simon was full of treasures, and sparked the following blog entry from Movement Matters, for the Early Childhood Movement and Music Association:

Here is an excerpt:
We think, when we are surrounded by people who expect action, that we don’t have time to experience the gap, to feel the emptiness, to listen for the music. But if we practice experiencing the gap when we’re alone – at our instruments, washing dishes, taking walks, or doing whatever quiets us – then we can learn to expand this experience into a social context.
Because there is never not time. Even in an emergency, our ability to respond quickly and effectively is schooled by our ability to “feel the emptiness in the situation.” That is the place where there is no resistance, where just the right move, the brilliance, can comes through us.
