Without Rhythm

My cousin got married today. It was absolutely gorgeous and the reception was beautiful. I did my duty and helped with some of the arrangements and kept her stress level down. 

During the dance portion of the reception, I noticed how many people danced without care! They didn’t have rhythm and either didn’t care or did not know it. I’m one of those who do not want to look silly, so I don’t dance. I can’t really remember a wedding I danced at. When I was younger, I didn’t dance because I thought that by dancing, I would give myself away as a gay man. I remember dancing in front of the mirror in junior high and thinking “you look like a woman” shaking like that. So since that time, I didn’t dance, not even at my proms or siblings weddings. I did slow dance, but not much else.

Maybe it is time to shake my booty. To not care…and just enjoy myself…

    I think it is high time you shake your booty in so many ways.
    This reminds me of a scene in Harold and Maude:
    Harold proclaims he feels so happy he ought to do cartwheels. Maude says well, why don’t you? Harold says it would look stupid. Maude tells him everyone has the right to make an ass of himself you can’t let the world judge you too harshly. And so he does some somersaults. 🙂

    That time will come and nothing will be able to stop you…

    Express yourself, it can be liberating
