"What I feel for you seems less of earth and more of a cloudless heaven." - Victor Hugo
I know I am not like most people. I do. I know it.
Oh, but don't get me wrong; there are days when I wish -- with all my heart I wish -- that I could just fall effortlessly into that hypnotic parade of humanity's rhythm. Forget the future, ignore the past, deny all sensitivity and….you know….join the round, round dance.
It would be so easy….so easy.
Unfortunately though, being a good dancer has never really been an ambition of mine. Sad story, that.
But I can't help it…I watch everyone, challenge everything and I ponder it all…without mercy, without hesitation. Test it all in my teeth like gold. I'm incorrigible -- completely incorrigible -- and I can't stop.
Just last week, while speaking with a rather stern potential employer, I was given the choice of starting a lucrative new job or continuing on with my rather haphazard, lackadaisical writing schedule.
A ponderous choice, to be sure: structure versus creativity, ambiguity versus mysticism, money versus wisdom. Who has not thought of these things?
And for a moment, I wasn't quite sure what to do.
Then, in the blink of an eye, a strange vision overwhelmed me. I imagined this impolite, paunchy entrepreneur not as the successful businessman that he was…but as a giddy gymnast prancing across a stage wearing a bright orange tutu. Yes, orange.
And he was good. He danced like a gazelle, like a wisp of air, he danced like Baryshnikov and the crowd cheered.
Even though I had gone through a rigorous procedure to get that job, I am sure that as I turned to leave his office I was smiling.
I have come to accept, you see, that I will never find happiness in a dance hall.
