Lamentations and Martha Graham’s 117th Birthday
Did you see the Google’s doodle-ific doodle in honor of Martha Graham, “the mother of modern dance”?
One of Ms. Graham’s most haunting performances was “Lamentation”. Here’s a shortened version. Writhing in agony within an all-encompassing garment, she seems to seek an escape until, finally, she gives in, consumed by sorrow…
Been there? Done that? Lamented?
Lament: “to mourn aloud, wail…synonym: grief” (Merriam -Webster)
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)
Do you know “the God of all Comfort”(2 Corinthians 1:3)?
