How Much Our Dancing Has Improved
“Barbara has a huge mind—it took her a long time on her own arduous path to capture
its extent from ground to heaven. But never fear, she was Midwesterner—she stubbornly

eternity.” Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones on Barbara Schmitz in
Thunder and Lightning.
