Dancing is a right, unalienable and not for removing, it is up there with singing, being able to stand on stage and deliver a poem, recite a monologue or doing anything that gives you pleasure and in which does not hurt another person. Even if you cannot do something well, even if you make yourself look a fool in the eyes of others, does it matter, does it mean a thing if you get an ounce of self worth from the very act.

Life is complicated, life is not always a bed of roses, neither is it a series of petals that cover up a piece of human anatomy at a time; life, like Time, is brutal, funny, sarcastic and sometimes downright terrifying, we have no way to control it, we have no way to subject it to our own whims; when you share a planet with seven billion other souls, getting everything you want is impossible and for that life is so much more interesting than ever.
