Story of my life
“You are epic”
This past weekend— was exactly what I needed. I rushed and rushed to make my way to Charlotte, NC only to park in the wrong parking deck to walk through the wrong door to the wrong hotel. Irony at its finest. Of course we made it with our little hearts racing. Finally at the show, Bassnectar had already taken its tole on a few helpless souls. I found my way into not giving a single care and danced my little body till I needed air. It was exactly what I needed. As the sweat beaded and poured out of my body, you would have thought I jumped into a pool and just got out. I wanted everyone to fill exactly what I felt. I wanted everyone to be on point with every little beat that was vibrating my being. It was the absolute best line-up I could have ever wished to hear. As though he just saw straight into my soul, he hit me with bass like it was just for me he was dj-ing. I danced until I felt like dancing was all I would ever do. When the show ended it was a mad dash to get through the crowd, but why be in a hurry? I wanted to reach the top so I kept going and going. Finally when the last deck arrived I found dead center and did nothing but sigh. That night was exactly what I needed and exactly what I wanted. To share the beauty of Charlotte’s down town with the people I love and care. It was everything to me in just that moment to know that all of yesterday’s troubles were no longer a burden. The night was far from over as we made our way back to the hotel. Making new friends and sharing old stories, we bonded from the start and good people were carried. This is love, light and hope. I could never ask for more. This is life this is what I live. The compliments given, the love that was shared, everything in all its splendor was exactly what I needed to remind me why this life is the life I choose. But as day broke with a boom and flash the start was still just beginning. A wedding to attend hours away, so packed up our bags and traveled east to beat the clock and make it in time. With no sleep yet, I dolled myself up. Made in time to rock our hardest and still going strong we refused to let the party be ended. So with a goodbye to Wallace and hello back to Raleigh we tripped on our little souls and made a new world. Day again was now about to break, and with the wind we traveled Raleigh’s hills to Bruger’s finest bagels. Reading the paper in last night’s attire, we couldn’t look finer. Flea market hopping and Raleigh show stopping, we were power houses. The body was rocking but my joints were aching, it was time to settle a little. So home bound we were and home bound we made. Fifty four hours later I finally said good night, and slept till sleep was no more.
It was the best time of my life here in the month of September. I won’t dare forget this weekend and the memories made. Take good care of your being if you dare, and dance till dancing is all you know. I will forever hold my head to the sky and say give me more. I won’t ever stop, the energy is all I need to survive. So walk with me if you wish because I bet it’ll be your best trip. Who is ready for take two? Who is ready to go hard? Let’s start a revolution. I know how to play the part.
I must admit, I do enjoy telling a good story.
With silence all around us and only your eyes affixed inside mine, I whisper the words [I am mean] and without a single breath wasted, eyes -that surpass any puppy dog’s look of sadness- immediately tense up and the words ”The fucking meanest” gnarl out of you as anger tries to over ride pure excitement and sheer happiness that you don’t know how to express. With fist clinched “I just want to hurt you so bad” seep through the cracks of your clinched teeth. As you release the pressure on your inner palm and grab my shoulders to pin me down, “I cannot believe you” bellows out. You cannot help but smile. “Why do you do that!” pipes out as you try to hide a smile that is to natural to undo. I laugh as the pressure from all the energy pumping through you is pushing me harder and harder onto the matter below me. With the release of your hands as they fling up into the air around you, “Man” breathes out from your diaphragm. I giggle as I sit up and put myself back together. It is funny, I think, just how every little decisions; every little word I speak; every little action I do; how I completely consume you. How I completely move you only seems possible to those who believe in fairy-tales. So, I compose my laughter, I wipe away my smiles, I reach to grab your hair and I take a breath in that releases [I was only kidding] loud enough so it my reach your ears. With the sound bouncing off your ear’s drum you turn to me and smile. A smile filled with ambivalence is all you can and could possibly produce after the roller coaster I just threw you on. Hahah- silly little story teller I have become.
I went canoeing this morning. -It made my day 10 times better.
