Prompt: Body integration. This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present?
I’m sure the author of this prompt is looking for something in-depth. He’s probably hoping I say something like, “Gazing out onto the German landscape, I lost myself in the moment,” or “Staring off into the infinite greyness of the ocean caused me to forget who I was, where I was, to only know that I was of the earth.”
But really, I’ve only had these integrated experiences on the dance floor. Like Missy Elliot says, “Music makes you lose control.” There is something completely wonderful about being surrounded by friends and loud music, whether it’s at a club or at a wedding or whatever. I can’t put my finger on it, but I have to say– I like it.
How’s that for not profound?
