Hey everyone,

I recently wrote a post at AWAKEN THE GIFT (http://awakenthegift.com/art-of-motion) about a form of art that most people do not consider as art. Have a read!

I don't mean to insult or dismiss conventional art in anyway, haha. I'm just throwing out ideas, and offering new ways to look at the simplest of things. I participate in a sport called "Tricking". For all of those who don't know, it is a sport that combines elements of primarily gymnastics and martial arts to produce an exotic blend of movements:

I'm writing this to encourage everyone to take a step back and look at movement in a different way. Moving doesn't always need a purpose, it doesn't always have to be pragmatic. You can do it just for the sake of doing it - for the beauty of it.

For a further elaboration of what I'm trying to say, check out the link I provided above. Leave a comment on the page too if you have something to say, I appreciate feedback!

I'm new to this site so excuse me for any mistakes, haha. I also paint and will try to upload some of my artworks in the future.

Like and support us on Facebook (http://facebook.com/awakenthegift) if you like the idea and want to spread the word!

I don`t click on links by first time posters, sorry...but I never do on any site I am a member of. I `spose that could be seen as non movement?
