The rhythm of New York.

That’s what the posters in the subway say about the show we went to yesterday: Stomp.

My friends, even if the show is initially British, posters weren’t lying.

This energy, this beat, this fun, this joy…. this everything that’s too big for you.

This is totally New York.

Yesterday, Hubby and I were in the heart of it. Our last row tickets magically became second raw seats. Upgraded…

During the show, the performers used brooms, garbage cans, matches, lighters… all kind of percussions to create stunning, electrifying beats.

The room became this giant chest.

You and all the people in there made its heartbeat.

Pulsing in chorus. Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive.

The show is over.

You’re still there: Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive.

You cross the street. Eat tacos. Drink a cold Coke right from the bottle. Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive.

In the subway, heading back home. Crowded car. 11 PM. People still heading somewhereBoom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive.

On the sidewalk, Hubby’s hand on my waist. Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive

Thinking about earlier in the day.

In the park. Fields covered with snow. Sun up and high. Melting flakes falling from pine branches. Fairy dust sparkling. Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive

In the coffee shop. Talking to a stranger. Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive

Heading back home from daycare. An enlightened townhouse. Duderino fascinated. Santa, reindeers, snowmen, holiday songs. Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive

Stopping at the Laundromat. Buying our daily gum balls. Children’s smiles. Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive.

Ordinary scenes of an ordinary life.

Ordinary scenes of an unordinary place.

New York.

Boom boom. Boom boom. Boom boom. Alive.

WHY IS IT SELF-CARE? Go to a musical and you will spend the rest of your evening dancing, singing, moving, unable to stop. It will revive the living in you.
