Obvious revelations

I had a wonderful experience dancing with my sweetheart. Sometimes I find myself embarrassed or humbled in simple revelations. I worked hard on learning the dance moves, what to do and what comes next. Being the man, I am expected to lead, so I took special care in learning what to do next. Then as the performance arrived I began to discover that the music wasn't just background sound played to add ambiance but integral and woven into each move. It was an obvious and embarrassing Realization but important nonetheless. I felt a bit humbled that it took me so long to feel the connection between the sound and action. For my understanding and leaning had all been in my head. Love has a way of upending my understanding and moving me into uncharted, to me, territory.  I want to love with all my mind and body and strength and soul, connecting them is sometimes the difficult element.
