Dance for yourself. If someone understands, good. If not, no matter. Go right on doing what interests you, and do it until it stops interesting you. [Louis Horst]
I have been thinking that much of what I DO Now I DO for myself. I don’t mean that I am just all about ME ME ME, though perhaps that does fit, I mean that I DO what I DO BEcause I CAN. BEcause it gives me pleasure, JOY, and a reason to BE.
I used to DO for others’ approval and acceptance. And I was never really able to get that right. Or hold onto it for more than a few brief moments. I think of this every morning during my writing practise. No one else ever reads that. Even I don’t reread it. But it has BEcome essential and necessary. To me.
Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music. [William Edgar Stafford]
I am utterly baffled by when I learned to BE so self-conscious. When I ate heaping spoons full of nonsense that demanded I have an explanation for why I DO what I DO. Even just all on my own sometimes I feel compelled to explain myself to me.
I want to BE BEcause Life’s been given me. No further explanations required.
I love you, Currie
