Aloha Gray, thank you so much for sending me a trackback and commenting on Talking Story.

I will share my response (there on my blog) here for you and your readers:

[What you had written there*] is precisely right - beautifully, interpretively, and creatively right!

I adore your concept of fluidity.

There definitely IS a strong connection with our hula tradition of dance in the Hawaiian islands, and you have the wheels turning in my head now with the suggestion. Let me think on it more.

For now, I’ll share another way the building metaphor has come up for me with client coaching: Windows.

We talk about which windows are open to the breezes, to let in fresh air, invigorating the entire inside, and which are shuttered closed, and why. We talk about how picture windows have disappeared from homes in our architecture today, and why they were a stable of new-home construction in the 1950’s.

Metaphors can be so useful and thought-provoking! I am definitely going to spend more time at your blog to learn more about your idea of dance as a metaphor for a "life like art."

Mahalo for reading my column on Lifehack.org: I look forward to hearing more of your insights!

*You wrote: "I read the idea of 'imi 'ola as sort of a choreographic planning time, after you've tried out various moves and combinations, finally getting to the point where you're ready to put it all into practice for the performance. Is that about right?"

The one thing I object to in the quote is that we are NOT the masters of our own private universes. Spit happens. We get hit by a car. Someone gives us a large unexpected gift. Both things, bad and good, can make a huge difference.

When I grow up, I'll get a Moleskine.
