Go watch this. Really, go. Read the rest of this when you return.
Back? There's something magical in the idea of dancing in public. Not in public where everyone else can hear the music, and many are dancing, too. But dancing alone, to music only you can hear. It does ride the edge of unacceptable, but why? Shouldn't anyone be allowed (and encouraged) to dance on any street corner they choose, any time?
There used to be a guy in Santa Cruz who could often be found on the funny little triangle median at the intersection of Front and River streets, always with a walkman, dancing his heart out. He always made me smile. I haven't seen that guy in a long time, and I miss him.
I've never danced on a street corner. Have you? We should do it. Just do it. I speak from experience - the things that are the scariest to comprehend are the most exhilarating when you just jump in and do it. This is the lesson I learned one summer in Black Rock City, but I have not applied it enough in my everyday live. Participate in life, don't just observe. It is absolutely worth it.
