I walk in a park as the season changes. The days are growing shorter, the nights deep and cold.
Looking at bare tree branches I am stuck by the realization that I hear music as the wind blows through the branches.
Indeed, there is a song blowing through the sky and into my heart-mind.
I begin to sing it right then and there, and continue to run it through my voice all the way home.
Once there, I turn off all the lights and give in to the feeling of the music.
Dancing in absolute darkness a song is born.
I realize that childhood terrors of ‘not being able to see’ have left me, and I feel a rush of power through my limbs.
This is not the darkness of evil or hungry ghosts.
This is the darkness of a sacred feeling of The Unseen, and I am one with it–liberated from fear.
**Note: Do not mistake a story of the birth of a song for the song’s true meaning. In order to find out the meaning of ‘Shadow Dance’ you will have to download it tomorrow on Diffuser.FM, turn out all the lights and DANCE.
