Ways to Dance by Mark Leidner →
Dance like nobody’s watching.
Dance like everybody’s watching, but nobody’s filming.

"If there was one thing I could save from the fire,
he said, the broken arms of the sycamore,
the eucalyptus still trying to climb out of the yard—
your breath on my neck like a music that holds
my hands down, kisses as they burn their way
along my spine—or rain, our bodies wet,
clothes clinging arm to elbow, clothes clinging
nipple to groin—I’ll be right here. I’m waiting."
"I didn’t become heartless , I just became smarter. My happiness will not depend on someone else . Not anymore"
"The best of life is built on what we say when we’re in love. Believe me, you’ll remember all the silly things you’ve said; and you’ll find that your life has been built on them. It isn’t nonsense, it’s the truth, it’s the only truth."
"Every word has consequences. Every silence, too."
"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset."
