I do it because…

Sacred Circle
Baltimore, MD
June 2008

I’m shy.  Sometimes painfully shy.

And because I want to get my sexy back.

Okay, I want to get my sexy period.

It makes me feel connected to my ancestors.

It makes me feel connected to my limbs.

Because I teach and I need to feel how it feels to be taught.
(And still not get it).

Because I like hardwood floors.

Because floor to ceiling mirrors make me honest, humble, and in some cases even, happy.

Because I’m awkward and kinda clumsy.

Because my soul says “Yes!”

Because I never thought I could.

Because I have more exes than ooohs.

Because I like to.

Because I used to watch Soul Train.

Because I like to.

Because I might decide to go to a club one night.

Because I want to.

Because if she can do it, I can do it too.

And because I like to.

And because I’m shy.

Because I’m getting too old to be shy.

And to gain/practice confidence.

To be better next year.

Because my teachers tell me to.

Because of the drums.

Because I can.  And some people can’t and wish they could.

Because I might not be able to tomorrow.

Because I stumble and I want make it look like I meant to do that.

Because my knees try to forget who’s the boss.

I dance.
