AM: let’s dance
Me: you know I have no problem dancing. I have it in me
AM: but you have it relegated
Me: I’m a big boy. It’s happening to me that I think I can copy any step I see, but the speed of my mind doesn’t represent the speed of my body, and what I used to be able to do quickly, nowadays not so much.
AM: besides, you are from another generation, not the current one.
Me: yes, of course. My internal rhythms are different from the current ones, although I have no problem adopting them. Just as I like music, all kinds, the current one is the one I listen to and therefore, I also feel the rhythm.
AM: the rhythm is in you. The dance, obviously, is different.
Me: as I was saying, my mind tells me that I can dance any rhythm, and I have the facility to learn to dance it, but I no longer have the energy, or the desire to do it. I haven’t danced in a long time. Maybe a party once in a while. And the rhythm is there, but also the lack of dancing makes me get tired faster, and therefore, the steps are not exceptional, but whatever comes out at the moment.
AM: and how does a Virginian indulge in this?
Me: haha. I am not perfect. I’m never going to be, and I accept that I am. But, regarding dancing, and at the age I am, I still keep the rhythm, and I enjoy my steps and the routine I can do or copy. The point is to have a good time and have fun.
AM: that’s the root of it all. Enjoy the moment. No matter how grandiose what you do is to others, it should be grandiose to you.
Me: that’s how I feel.
AM: and what does dance represent to you, besides having fun?
Me: the flow of energy. The movement of the whole body. The circulation of all that vibration that merges with the music and generates that reaction that reaches my whole body and my mind, in a very emotional way, and it does me good. I have no way to listen to music and not move. And my body has to set the rhythm in a way to merge my body, and its movement, with the song.
AM: and you give back to that sound that you receive, the movement that you generate.
Me: I feel it as an exchange, but, above all, I feel it as if I am honoring that song. To whom composed it. And to the rhythm, the vibration, and the beat of that music.
AM: and will you show us a video in which you danced?
Me: no, haha! I don’t have any. But I would like to share a couple of dance videos that, without a doubt, amaze me and in my mind, I feel like it could be me dancing that way.
AM: very funny and inspiring!
I invite everyone to watch Matias’ video with the theme of the day.
Finally, I encourage everyone to engage in conversation with their own I Am, to listen to what we each have to say to each other. No one else but us can re-signify our own being
