twirlgrrl: (twirl flower)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

I use this name because I am a spinner. My username references a core part of my identity and brings to mind the greatest bliss I've experienced. I am not interested in changing it.

I wrote a long post about it once; it can be found under my "spinning" tag.

Seriously

The bliss of spinning through The Eleven or Lazy Lightning>Supplication is absolutely indescribable.

I read an article this week about whirling dervishes and Sufi. There are a couple of parts that I really like. The whole article can be found here:

I am not Sufi. But I have spent a lot of time in my life spinning, going around in circles, whirling, turning, whatever you want to call it. It is the way I typically dance to the Grateful Dead. I am out of practice now, but at the peak of my involvement I could spin for up to 45 minutes at a time.

I don't use any particular method or placement of my hands or feet the way the Sufis do, but there are similarities in what I have experienced and what the woman who wrote this article experiences.

A lot of crazy hippie blather about twirling, spirituality, nostalgia, self-expression, blah blah blah )
