She went to a dance class the other day. Zumba.
She amazed herself, keeping up with the steps. Letting go, little by little. Feeling her body move to the rhythm. Feeling her body at all.
Behind her, a woman let out a rolling "Charo-esqe" yell!
It shocked my friend at first, but she liked it.
All the way home, alone in her car, she practiced her own Charo yell.
When we free ourselves, we give others permission to do the same.
