There are times when I am blessed as I dance.
When the twang of a lone guitar starts feeling like a light caress; and when the music is into me even as I am into the music, I feel connected powerfully. And I dance to magnify and celebrate that connection. I fling my arms open wide and move as much of my body as possible to receive and soak in the essence of it all.
As if instinctively, the energy refreshes every cell of my body, healing and restoring so that even if only for a while as I dance I am way more than just myself. I am you, her, him, they. I am us. I am that part of ourselves that is true, good and beautiful.
I dance to the music and to what I experience.
If I were to imagine how I would look like when I am in that state of oneness I'd say I look like this photo I took of a Cattleya.
I have to work on being in that state of oneness even if I am not dancing. Still, I am really deeply grateful.
