For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

Perhaps The Time To Dance Is Now


I would believe only in a God that knows how to dance. FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE.

Poetry is to prose as dancing is to walking. PAUL VALÉRY.

Dance is the hidden language of the soul. MARTHA GRAHAM.

Dance first. Think later. It's the natural order. SAMUEL BECKETT.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to seek, and a time to lose; A time to keep, and a time to throw away; A time to tear, and a time to sew; A time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate, A time for war, and a time for peace. ECCLESIASTES 3: 1-8

I think Beckett's quote explains Matt's dance and everyone's response to him.

Dance when you feel like dancing…

The composer Michael Tippett used to test out his melodies by dancing them round his studio, apparently. I wonder how many other composers do/did this?

The Solitary Walker said...

The only one that comes immediately to mind is Fat Boy Slim, Dominic.

Sorry, Dominic, I'm feeling frivolous tonight!

Let's dance!

Great idea, SW! What's the music - ZZ Top, or Necky Becky's song?
