BLOG – GIFT DAY 317 a month of inspiration :: being human

13 Nov

Today, in my month-long nod to inspiration, I share a beat.
But first, a song by The Killers

Are you human? Or are you dancer?
I love it. I sing it. I bounce to the beat.But ….it took me this long to understand it. Apparently Hunter S. Thompson said “America is raising a generation of dancers.”I missed those years, and don’t really have all the context, but his point in short: people were afraid of stepping out of place and following their own beat. Thus the lyrics by The Killers, “are you human or are you dancer?”

If you watch the above video you will see a guy at a Celtics game who just doesn’t care. He is definitely dancing to his own beat… and inspiring many around him I might add.

Both videos are beats.
And I think beg the question… are you dancing to your own beat?

If that’s not inspiring to think about, I leave you with the words I bounce to when I get stuck, confused or otherwise forget that I am human:

I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought, but I was kind
And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart

Cut the cord

Here’s to dancing to your own beat, whatever that may be.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {playmore!}

{what would it mean
to dance to your own beat?}
