End of Week Zen

What a brutal week it’s been. As a way to shift the energy, I’m happy to toast Jacob Jonas, whose dance company is skyrocketing to fame. I first met Jacob in ballet class, when he was just beginning to form a company. I was impressed by his ambition and singular vision, combined with being a a really good guy. Here’s one of his dancers, Jill Wilson, at the Kennedy Center.

“There is a connection, hard to explain logically but easy to feel, between achievement in public life and progress in the arts. The age of Pericles was also the age of Phidias. The age of Lorenzo de Medici was also the age of Leonardo da Vinci, the age of Elizabeth also the age of Shakespeare, and the new frontier for which i campaign in public life, can also be a new frontier for American art.” – John Fitzgerald Kennedy
