"And then take yourself out dancing, to a club where no one knows you, stand on the outside of the floor until the lights convince you more and more and the music shows you. Dance like no one’s watching." – tanya davis

WE ARE GOOD AT CREATING LINES THAT DIVIDE US, SEGMENT US INTO RED/BLUE, BLACK/WHITE. SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME, WE HAVE BEEN FIGURING OUT WAYS TO CREATE DISTANCE, TO KEEP EACH OTHER AT BAY. BUT THE TRUTH IS, SPACES ARE BETTER THAN LINES. THE SPACES BETWEEN AND AROUND THOSE LINES, WHERE OUR DIFFERENCES BLUR AND GIVE BIRTH TO MOMENTS WHERE WE CAN FORGET OURSELVES, AND JUST BE. SPACES WHERE WE CAN DANCE. WHERE WE CAN LAUGH. WHERE WE CAN SEE EACH OTHER, REALLY SEE EACH OTHER, FOR THE FIRST TIME. THIS IS THAT SPACE. COME IN. FORGET YOURSELF.
