I have been restless of late. Disquieted by this life and longing for my college days. Not because they were particularly great. Oh contraire! I yearn for the sense of release I had found during those days, when restless and unable to sleep, for my quiet place, where I let loose the pent up feelings and emotions that bind. Where I set myself free and quieted my mind.
In the wee hours of the night I would cross the campus to the theater building and make my way to the dance studio. There as I had so many times before I would dance with utter abandon. Till exhausted I collapsed under the skylights. Released. Unbound. Free.
Now time has progressed. I am not as young and nimble as I used to be. I long for the freedom of expression through movement that my body once obliged me. For that yearning, that desire to explode from the inside, to open myself wide to the glory of my soul, a whirling dervish spinning towards heaven. And sometimes late at night that call still beckons.
Then I received an email from an old high school friend, my something extra below, expounding the advantages of taking a dance break. So I decided why not give it whirl. Even if only a brief moment at my desk I could let go. Now this by no means reached the level of my late night self-explorations but it seemed to help. So if you feel so compelled go ahead and give it a shot. Let Loose!
