If we’re not supposed to dance

To be alive: not just the carcass
But the spark.
That’s crudely put, but…
If we’re not supposed to dance,
Why all this music?

  13. We are suppose to dance or sing or write or curate or run or paint…… Whatever gives us that spark! (You do not want to hear me sing, however. Sounds a bit like a cat in the shower. My dancing is not much better. I think I will stick to writing.) Another good post, Dave.
