I love music.
I love dance.
I love dill havarti cheese.
I love listening to music by Beggar Folk. The soaring vocals give me chills.
I love practicing the ukulele, and all that I learn about music when I do so.
Did you know that Amazing Grace is in 3/4 time? And that beats one and two are a half note which corresponds to one syllable of the lyrics. Beat 3 also corresponds to one syllable, but it may include more than one note.
I love dancing freely, my body giving expression to the music.
And I love learning prescribed steps, and what it teaches me about music, same as practicing the ukulele teaches me.
I love moving in sync with other people. Together we create moving pictures on the floor, like the ones marching bands create on fields.
I love the way I feel so free and joyful when my body loosens to dance.
I love the way I feel so free and joyful when my body loosens to sing.
The Beggar Folk sing: "the soul inside me seems to soar when music finds me." And so does my soul soar, when music fills my veins and moves me to dance.
