Man that chick could dance

Most people lead their lives in fear. It stifles their impulses. It keeps them safe. It makes them more law abiding. But the myth we live with is to abandon our fears. Romantic figures are carved out of lives that seem open to all possibilities. The great personalities of this time seem beyond fear. They are impulsive. Court danger. Fall madly in love. Fall out of airplanes or at the end of bungy cords. They are free. And the rest of us. We live our dangers through them. We want to be safe. Think we are safe. But we are like passengers aboard the Titanic watching a magician’s card tricks. Something awful may be happening out there. Maybe something wonderful.
