Slide

With a red cup swirling in my hand, I was dedicated to remain passive and entrenched in

my corner for the rest of the night. I’m not one to explore the vastness of a strange party, filled

with unpredictability and a few familiar “acquaintances”. The only person I really knew was my

friend Matt, but the night had swapped him into another room. Really, solidarity and the red

cup were my only true companions for the night.

I devoured the drink and braced my head with the sheer glory of a buzz. I continued to

sink in to my realm, but I would take a few moments to catch the flicker of movement on the

claimed “dance floor”. The music flowed from one end of the room, to the cluster of people

swaying to the beat, then all the way to my fingers and my feet. I bopped my head in swirls, and

looked up to a guy that had been dancing alone for majority of the night. He shifted his

shoulders and chest back and forth, flicked his hands and would slide his feet to the vibration

within each beat. His eyes would close and his hands would raise up whenever he was really

feeling the music. He was radiating glimpses of gentle human joy.

I put my cup down, graced myself off the sofa, and tip toed towards the middle of the

crowd. I turned to this solo stranger and followed his rhythmic flow. He opened his eyes and

said, “Hey,” with a smile. I nodded and smiled back. He closed his eyes, and we both continued

to dance alone, together. The warmth from the pit of my stomach sparked all the way to my

head. I let everything melt from my thoughts and grasped the moment as much as I really

could. With a simple swirl, I felt like I had made a declaration of my own warm youthful light.
