There are few things in life that are truly free. Some things may not come with an explicit cost attached, but it sure feels like we are paying for it. For instance, you certainly need to pay for water. Puddle water might be free, but you better have access to a bathroom and good health care, and it would probably be in that exact order. There are indeed some inalienable free things in the modern world, but it is generally not openly discussed. Colour me surprised when I saw the freedom to move your body on full public display one day.
As I took a stroll downtown, I heard the thumping beats of a good time. My steps started to sync up with the rhythmic tempo of the music, and soon, I was lead to a colourful alley sans drugs dealers and strewn garbage. In plentiful supply was a crowd of would-be day-dancers.
The mythical day-dancer is sort of an urban legend. Through stories, we all heard of persons who danced their way through the robotic crowd of the urban jungle without a hint of care. You may have even witnessed these unicorns yourself one day as they jives down the street. Just like how the milkshake brings out all the boys to the yard, I guess the music brings out all the day-dancers out to the alley.
Bravo to all the care-free and foot-loose acrobats for infecting others with smiles, and even some toe-tapping for those closet day-dancers.
