Moments that Take Your Breath Away

This is going to be a very random post coming totally out of nowhere... but I felt I should blog about this since it totally touched my heart.

So... in the taxi on my way home there was this little girl who was a girl the taxi driver dropped home everyday from school. The road to my house was blocked so we took a detour and dropped her home first.

The girl was about four or five years old and when we got there her housemaid was waiting to taker her into the house. All her efforts to drag her into the house were in vain since she just kept on singing and dancing. You should have seen the serene smile on her face as she sang, that kind of serenity is present only in little kiddies. I could not hear the song but I could feel the movements as she shook her body from side to side. It was utterly beautiful.

Words cannot express exactly how the moment was. She was stopping traffic with her singing! I felt pity for the housemaid as she shouted but, the shouts fell on deaf ears for the girl was not in this world. This world of traffic, time and business was not familiar to her. She was in the childish world where everyone's entitled to their own happy ending and Wonderland is everyone's destiny.

Jeez, when did I lose my entrance ticket to that world? Damn.... I seriously need to find it. I mean, that kind of serenity is something which I would kill for (NO, I won't kill her!) I think I just got caught in that moment.

"To dance takes strength, artistry and passion. You can express any emotion possible in the most beautiful form, if you're willing to take the first step." -Anonymous-

I love the quote. Being a dancer myself, I know how you can just lose yourself completely in the rhythm, in the sheer fluidity of the steps.
Nice blog you've got here :)
