6/30: From a low angle. I’ve been missing deadlines, I know, but I decided not to give myself a hard time. I’m the one who sets the rules, after all, haha. Also, for this challenge, I decided to make the weekends optional because I’m starting to enjoy Saturdays away from the computer and I’m not about to let a blog obligation ruin that. That being said, this 30-day challenge will run up to about 5 weeks, excluding weekdays, as well as stormy days when electricity and internet are out. Yes, like yesterday.
And now that we got that out of the way, here’s my photograph for today, from a low angle, our first dance.
When you know that you know who you love, you can’t deny it.
Or go back, or give up, or pretend that you don’t buy it.
When it’s clear this time you’ve found the one, you’ll never let him go
Cos you know and you know that you know. ~Shawn Colvin
We danced to Shawn Colvin’s When You Know (OST of the movie Serendipity), a song we chose for its lyrics, and its beautiful music, and the fact that it brings back scenes and memories of New York.
It was really special, our first dance. I was wearing a flowy chiffon skirt, there were bubbles, and mood lights, and an audience of family and friends that seemed to have faded away in the background as soon as the first chords of the song played and David started swaying me steady in his arms.
It was the first of many more slow dances to come, it turned out. These days, however, I need not wear a fancy white gown. No need for bubbles and mood lights and music either. These days, we would dance in our pajamas, or whatever we have on, whenever we feel like it, wherever we are. We would dance on the kitchen floor, or on the rooftop, or in the supermarket, or sometimes even in the bus stop while waiting for our ride.
The whole world is our dance floor. And everything around us fades away every time we start swaying, just like it did the first time we danced.
