be spontaneous

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

In Miami, during the National YoungArts Foundation program week, teens selected for their talent in nine different disciplines had the opportunity to share their work on major stages.  The work itself was extraordinary, of course.  But what most deeply touched me was the spontaneous nature of the anticipatory crowds. 

Here we are, ahead of the readings by the young writers.  The musicians had carried their instruments with them, as they always did, and had broken out into some song.  The dancers, hearing the strands of melody, took the music upon themselves—half impulse, half something they might have done before. 

I want to live like that.
