I start to feel both patriotic and nostalgic when I focus on Independence Day, and what it means to me. I love the story of our 13 little colonies, declaring themselves politically independent on the 4th of July. There was no new country at this time, no USA at all. Instead, like a precocious baby bald eagle, we jumped out of the nest and spread our wings, and hoped for the best. And the nostalgic memories of this celebration that ensued, for me, are deeply united with my childhood love of fireworks. I always enjoyed seeing the pretty colors, and hearing the powerful noises, when watching fireworks or better yet, setting them off with direct adult supervision on my grandma's back patio.

I guess ecstatic dance is kind of like lighting the fuse on a new untested firecracker. Your smoldering subconscious desires are the punk, and it requires a brief moment of focus at the start, pressing that orange glowing tip against the end of the fuse until it begins to sparkle and hiss and smoke. And if you are reading this, probably you are a big boy now, and you are independent, and you can make the decision to set off any kind of psychological or emotional firework that you dare to ignite. Dance has that power to bring to light, in a beautiful way, all the colors and explosions of your subconscious imagination.

So it is time to celebrate, right? Let's dance upon our independence from kings, yes, and our greater capacity to grow into a future of true independence, and to spread our wings, and fly where ever we may. Back in 1776, it was not the guys in the white powdered wigs, writing on parchment with a fancy quill that made Independence Day great. The hard work was already over, on the ground, accomplished by ordinary citizens who had already rejected tyranny and expelled the armies of King George. Let us strive to be like the simple colonists, then, who create true independence at the very grass roots of our culture, where our dancing feet meet the ground.

The dance starts at 10:30, opening circle at 11. Our location in Houston is Match, on Main Street, at Holman. I hope to see you there, I am excited to see you lighting off the metaphorical fireworks in your dance. Everyone is welcome, bring a friend if you want.

From the heart,

- Andy
