* I originally posted this on August 2nd, 2012. I’m deciding to repost this because I like its painted quality. I’m unsure about my lack of details in the background, though I suppose it adds a sense of motion and focus. I’ve since started to use fewer lines.
Here’s the original post and text:
seriously. it’s in my top ten lists of things to start happening at a party. i especially enjoy when i get to play (swing dance) and i get to make mistakes but also be surprisingly good (i construct a narrative as i dance). i love dancing. i didn’t capitalize my “i”s. this is just to say.
I walked indoors from our balcony to find Teek and Ryan figuring out some swing choreography on our house’s newly organized dance floor. I love swing dancing. It requires each participant to share responsibilities, just like they’re singing a duet. I romanticize their efforts: they have to share the embarrassment of messing up; they get to enjoy the perfection of getting each step right.
