The dancer in me is envious of your experience... As a young woman, I was a dancer and had in recent years starting taking classes again. Tap, hip-hop, ballet, all a return to the most beloved time of me life. I left it all when the maskies vehemently stood their ground and the woman, trying to keep her studio open by bowing to the dictators, masked the kids. It was way, way too much for me. I left and I haven't listened to any cabal music in three years. Is is just one chiasm of many I haven't filled with other things yet. Boy do I miss it all...the joy, the distraction, the music.

You are right about this Martin!! We have not celebrated life enough, in these years since all this began and before. When I was young, I celebrated every weekend and made it a priority to have lots of wonderful music, beautiful lights, smiles all around me and blissed out movement. The flow of freedom and bodies of strangers and friends closely jiving!

As I grew older my life became more serious and more centered on stress, worry and the pain and disasters a nurse sees constantly! I absorbed trauma in my cells and organs and did not think that music and dance and others close by all together flowing in rhythm or in unique movements not so flowing but, would help me more than anything else in the world. We need to move and dance when we can. Thank you,

The greater the chaos and destruction, the more vital it is to sing and dance
