Visualization is powerful. It’s a technique I learned in high school as a way to go over dance choreography for performances. Now I use visualization to keep my brain moving when my body isn’t sure it can follow.
I see myself dancing. I think about dancing, and how privileged I was to do it for years. I think about dancing in a desert landscape with nobody around except a massive sound rig on an art car. Sometimes people are there, but it’s not about other people. It’s about me dancing, feeling movement, and enjoying the hell out of it. Since I can listen to music as much as I want now, I can really transport myself somewhere else to dance. Visualizing myself dancing can be amazing, it can also get really sad all of a sudden. I believe I will do it again, but it’s hard to be patient when I can’t move the way I want unless it’s in my mind. It takes a lot of energy to force the sadness out when it interrupts my “dancing time,” but the more I force it out the less energy it will eventually take.
I’m grateful to have amazing memories to pull scenes from to complete my visualizations. Today the music is reggae and dancehall, and the scene is a Black Rock desert sunrise.
