Jiving as a way of living: the stories

 

A friend of mine asked me why I was so entranced with dancing.
I said, “Because every dance is different. That means I endlessly grow.”
She said, “I’d love to learn to dance.”
I said, “Then don’t leave your longings unattended.”
A lady asked me where I got my ideas from for dance moves
“I steal them,” I said.
“You mean they aren’t your dance moves,” she said.
“No,” I replied.  You see I never get them right, when I copy someone else’s move, so I have to change it.  In the end I change each move so much it becomes unrecognisable from the original.”
“That still seems like cheating,” she said.
“Then I’m a cheat,” I agreed.
A lady asked me where I got my ideas from for dance moves.
“Everything that needs to be danced has already been danced,” I said.  “But since no one was watching, I do it again.”
