Norma Swenson: I have a little sleeper for you: when I was quite young, I never saw myself as anything but an artist, even though you could see the outlines of some kind of activism or social criticism. I was very interested in drawing and painting, and for a while I wanted to be a writer, but then I discovered dance and thought, “Well, now, this is really more like it.” I was a dancer all through late high school and college years and even as a married woman. (In those days, a married woman was not a dancer!) Then I went through a major struggle around the birth of my child and discovered it was a watershed. You could not deviate, you could not ask questions, you could not have any control at all over what happened to you in the hospital.
