Writings about writing
Written on May 20, 2020
Writing is the best solitary act. In my case, it has brought me a much-needed amount of balance and rejuvenation. For a people person like me, whose profession solely revolves around human interaction, it is refreshing to tackle a new challenge that allows me to have more control over the end results. My level of fulfillment as a dance teacher/mentor is often measured by the amount of success or well-being that my students get to experience. Although rewarding, it is a draining process to be part of, which explains my urge to reconnect to an activity that is easily practised in solitude. This revived passion of mine does not aim at teaching or lecturing people. I am not trying to convince anyone to agree with my thoughts; I am simply expressing them for therapeutic motives. Throughout this journey, I have also rediscovered the joy provided by the ‘’absolute silence”. A noiseless atmosphere is the ideal place for critical thoughts to speak up and for great ideas to shout without being interrupted by the giggles of the world. This venture feels so uncommon to me, that I wonder if I will be able to honour my daily engagement to this blog once our economy returns to normal. But you know what, never mind. I must move that concern out of the way. Now, let me go back to what I am already doing.
