Full: an ode to the power of music and dance

Dance is my water and

I have not been drinking.

How did I not hear?

Why did I not listen?

I didn’t realize just how thirsty I’ve been.

An invitation to remember.

Tonight, with candles lit

with Sara Bareilles’

soothing sounds

the music dances me.

The sweet divine, the opening,

the unfurling

is more powerful than any food could possibly taste.

Why do we try to fill our supposed emptiness with distraction?

When really we are not empty.

Never empty.

Dance reminds us, if we let it,

we are so, so full.

An invitation to remember.

You are not empty.

You are so full.

Sometimes you just need

the music and the dance

to remind you

of what you already know.
