What did I learn today?
I learned to how to give and when to take. I learned when to lead and when to follow. I learned just how hard it is and how worth the pain and effort is. This balance fits me. It fills a small space, somewhere between the heart and lungs. I can survive without it, I have no trouble with that. But I become more than myself when this little pocket is filled. We make something more, improvising a dance to a piece of music made in the moment. It’s beautiful. Isn’t that love? How ironic, to learn that on Valentine’s Day.
