•{ She Dances . . .

“But mother, I don’t want to dance,” the young girl told her mother. “Please don’t make me.”

She fiddled at her daughter’s skirt and combed her fingers through her hair to get it to hang just right. All the while she smiled at her daughter. “It’s not always about what you want, child. It’s about what you need.” The pair of them stood behind the closed red velvet curtains on the stage. Beyond that were the muffled sounds of the crowd mixed in with warm-up chords from the orchestra.

The young girl felt her heart beating out of her chest. Thinking of what she would see when the curtains were drawn was enough to nearly paralyze her with fear. The mother took her daughters hands. “Look at me,” she instructed. The young girl looked at her mother, eyes wide and lips pressed to a nervous thin line. “Take everything that you’re feeling now and use it. Push it out through your arms and down to your fingers so the audience can feel it. Let it run through your legs so they can feel the steps. Open yourself to the music and take them on a journey. Speak through your actions and let the dance heal comfort you.”

Though she did not fully grasp what her mother was saying the young girl nodded. Her mother let her hands go as the interlude began to play. The girl took her place at the center of the stage and the curtains opened . . .

That was many years ago. Now, that same stage had fallen into disrepair, only showing remnants of beauty it had once been.  The stage was not as polished and many of the seats in the audience had gone missing, but the memories of that night and ones thereafter remained. No longer a girl, the now young lady came back to the stage from time to time. And she would dance. Her mother’s words echoed in her mind with every movement she made.

She danced for herself. She danced to move through old memories and make pathways to her dreams. She danced to undo all the knots which were bundled up inside of her.

She danced so that she could feel.

Dance is the only art wherein we ourselves are the stuff in which it is made.” – unknown

•{ Sunset Thoughts

I waited for you today
But you didn’t show
No no no

I needed you today
So where did you go?
You told me to call

You told me to call
Said You’d be there
And though I haven’t seen you
Are You still there?

I cried out with no reply
And I can’t feel you by my side
So I’ll hold tight to what I know
You’re here and I’m never alone…

•{ Last Car on the Last Train

It’s the last car on the last train.
Gotta make it through another day

Don’t let the colors fade
Gonna be strong
It’s the last train, but it still goes on

Clickety-clack
Goes the track
And it’s keeping pace with my heart

Where’s the light?
That leads the way out of the dark?

It’s the last car on the last train
Don’t let go
Don’t fade

•{ Dreams in Light

“Dreams are the bright creatures of poem and legend, who sport on earth in the night season, and melt away in the first beam of the sun, which lights grim care and stern reality on their daily pilgrimage through the world.”

 Charles Dickens quotes

Though things may look different in the day when our eyes are open and we are faced with the realities of this world, it doesn’t mean that we should stop dreaming.

Sometimes it is hard to stand in the bright light of realities truth and you’re blinded by the things you don’t want to see. You’d rather return to your dreams where things are better.  Don’t turn away.  Bring your dreams from the night and into the light.

•{ Sunlight and Mask . . .

Every day, after dressing for her role she stepped outside to sit amongst the flowers and grass. The Sun caressed her skin and its warmth whispered promises in her ears. How sweet they were. How they sought to reach into her core and fill her with light, but today would not be that day.  As she felt the Sun beaming down on her she lifted her hand and brought up a mask.

When she turned her face towards the Sun again there was nothing for it to touch. Its words rolled off her mask and the warmth was forgotten.

It was time to start another day. Now she was set for the role she had to play.

Coffee and Sunsets . . .

The landscape was beautiful in the light of the setting sun. The world around her seemed to be slowing down as the day began towards its end. She stepped out on her porch and sighed into the cup she held in hand. A small dog ran about her feet and bounded off the porch to chase after the last few lingering butterflies in the field.

She sat on the edge of the porch and pulled up her legs. Watching the setting sun make its way through the trees put a longing in her heart.

“Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know, where I can not go
Though I long to be . . .”
“How Far I’ll Go” – Auli’i Cravalho
