Maysoun Wazwaz is an arts administrator, advocate, educator, dancer, and activist.

This is a real grab bag of a list. I started off with so many links and spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to share with you. Should I organize a Top 10 list? Is there a specific topic on which I want to focus? No, not really. We are complex individuals shaped by so many unique experiences — experiences that ultimately define who we are and how we make decisions in the world. (Either that or my Gemini rising is kicking in again.) So, while the list has been narrowed, the subjects highlighted are many and each is close to my heart and mind.

Pina Bausch. My all time favorite choreographer. I miss her everyday.

Pickpocket by Robert Bresson. Such fluidity of movement. Gorgeous.
