and tonight a thought came to me, in the way when you always know something but just have forgotten it somehow: I like dancing when I can share with the others, either in dancing or in performing to an audience. The audience. how important it is to have someone witness you: it forms the core of performance and without a witness there's no performance. And sharing with other fellow artists and dancers the experience of dancing, the experience of creating. It is the time when I experience humanity to the fullest. And I say this with certainty: I have not so far in my life have any other experience that gives me the same kind of liveliness and humanness, and the worth of life if not the beauty of it. I learn how to appreciate life over death in dancing.
It is the sharing that keeps me going. I need to remember that.
