The art of Mahalia Jackson

“My hands, my feet, I throw my whole body
         to say all that is within me.”
Mahalia Jackson (1911-1972)
American gospel singer

These are magnetic words, they pull me to believe, to have faith that all art is physical as well as every other attribute, to know that it takes muscles and mind to move what is within me to a place where it makes sense and teases senses, where others can feel the nudge, take a taste, hear the cymbals of the music that might be heard, see the high arc of rainbows and savor the gladsome scent of blossoms that refuse to close at sunset
