“And if you want to catch a glimpse on how the truth unfolds
You just dance dance dance
Tick tick explode!” -Saul Williams
So much glowing on this night. And I’m not just referring to the hula hoops and the spinning poi.
It’s really quite amazing, the way people start to interact when there’s a booming soundsystem present. Suddenly, all the parameters change. Fear doesn’t even become a factor. People metamorph into their better selves, free to act without pretension or judgement. Whatever ugliness and tension was left over in the area from the nights before seemed to melt away. Spontaneous hugging and laughter abound. You’re dancing with complete strangers and yet they feel like your closest friends on earth.
In this, it’s like rediscovering what it truly means to be alive.
