Track Correspondences:

* Italicized tracks #10 and #12 of Home Mudra are additional tracks, fleshing out the playlist timewise and creating space for guided Freedance (track 10) and Floorplay (track 12).

Track #13 of Home Mudra corresponds to Debbie's returning to Wasn't It Good and closing by revisiting the opening movements to the first song.  Home Mudra likewise comes full circle by revisiting the opening movements, but to a different piece of music.

Artistic Note:

Holding hands with Trust on my left and my Sensation Scientist on my right, we're taking a running creative leap of faith!  Aligning with my Focus of Heart & Hara and BMES holism and Intent of Coming Home, I am allowing my BMES to direct me in terms of what fits.  Trusting my Sensation Scientist, what I sense in my body as a 'click' both with the choreography and the Focus and Intent is what landed in the playlist.  From the lens of 8BC variance window, I am creatively playing with the standard -.3/+.3 8BC adaptation, sensing how this changes the texture of the movements, and weaving the thread of Coming Home throughout.  While the numbers appear to be a radical leap....... Sensation says:  "YES!  This is it."
