It's just fun

Oh forget about all the fussing and mental agonizing in regards to my salsa classes. Now that I'm in level 2, it's just so much damned fun! Not intellectual in the slightest. I couldn't care less about the social dynamics. It's not about what anyone thinks of me, or how much they like me. It's about how much I'm loving the dance. It's exhilarating and a total kick. Guys who can really dance. Guys who are there to dance. Real movement as we woosh around the room. It's a major endorphin high for me.

There's nothing like a great mind with brilliant articulation and original thought. I love that. I love conversation passionately. But there's nothing like leaving it behind too. Letting go into pure motion, the music leading. Adjusting to a stranger, matching the rhythm. The high of non-verbal communication. Giving into their lead, having it take you to just right the place. I'm just sorry it took me this long to get going. I'm having a great time.

I took Salsa when I was living in Costa Rica. It's amazing how good it is when you get really good at it. It's also really apparent how important it is for the guy to be good. They really do have to LEAD!
