Happy Dance

leave a comment »

Finally, I’m learning to dance! At least, enough so to look forward to dancing in public without feeling uncomfortable about how awkward I still am.

Yeah, it’s “only” line dancing. And only the simplest line dances so far, nothing very complicated. But you know it’s finally taken hold of me when you catch me line dancing solo in my living room to a Bob Dylan video, just for the hell of it.

And yeah, there are still those who take delight fabricating shortcomings they can judge me over, who would ridicule me using the word “dance” to describe what I am doing. I know, I do know, nothing I ever am or do can ever be good enough for them. Yet is there any dance more perfect in its art than that which lifts the heart to such joy as I can share in every misstep and in each jagged gesture?

Fun. Get in line, kid . . .
