I wish.....

I wish the cut off age for "So you think you can dance" was not under 30.  I wish I had realized my love for dancing earlier.  I don't want to go back - I love my life - but my body at 39 can't handle what I think I would have done to it at 25 had I realized this passion.  I think it is funny how our souls are put into these physical shapes.  I think it is funny how I am this massive being and when I dance, in my head, I am petite and perfect.  In my head the shape that I take up disappears and it just becomes energy moving around to emotion.  What an amazing gift that most of us don't even use to express ourselves.  Physical movement.  I wish we were all more at ease to move freely.  I wish that when all of the stresses of daily life get overwhelming we could all just jump in the air and kick and flail our arms around and feel better - instead of just holding it all in.

Maybe you should petition for an age increase? I bet you'd do well on that show. :)
