Chapter Three: Dance
When Kathy danced she moved without thinking.
Dancing was auto-hypnotic. She lost herself in the drums and rhythms.
She abandoned time in movement, in the moments flowing from the present time to past ages.
She relived the steps of her ancestors, felt their feelings, their fears and their hopes for the future.
Dance was a place of transcendence.
When she was dancing she was not fully engaged with the present world, the psychic noise and the din of chaos slipped away and the cares of the world disappeared.
Kathy experienced this same phenomenon in many ways, but what made dancing different for Kathy was that while dancing she did not succumb to the temptation to retreat into no-time.
She hovered in between the world of the present moment, and the world of her ancestors, simultaneously connected to both.
With her body in motion, she could fully not disengage from the world around her, and at the same instant she was connected to both the world of her memories and the collective consciousness that joined her to the entirety of humanity.
Dancing was freedom.
Dancing was the ultimate expression of who she was, of her uniqueness as a human being.
Kathy danced for the joy of it.
