`Nous sommes tous de lopins et d`une contexture si informe et diverse, que chaque piece, chaque momant, faict son jeu. Et se trouve autant de difference de nous a nous mesmes, que de nous a autruy`.
We are all patchwork, and so shapeless and diverse in composition that each bit , each moment, plays its own game. And there is as much difference between us and ourselves as between us and others.
Michel de Montaigne.
These toys are used by Claire, a lovely lady. She has the constant flow and fluidity of movement that comes with dance training. When visiting ,we were introduced to these toys that are used to communicate with children in her therapy practice. I still have a functional and enjoyable relationship with all sorts of toys, some as props for my practice and some of a purely whimsical nature. As soon as the toys emerged from the tin where they lived, I was enchanted. The world should play more .
Perhaps every one is every thing.
Cada um de nos e varidos, e muintos, e uma prolixidade de si mesmos. Por isso aquele que despreza o ambiente nao e o mesmo que dele se alegra ou padece. Na vasta colonia do nosso ser ha gente de muitas especies, pesando e sentindo diferentemente.
Each of us is several, is many, is a profusion of selves. So that the self who distains his surroundingsis not the same as the self who suffers or takes joy in them. In the vast colony of our being are many species of people who think and feel in different ways.
