My dear,

People don’t like surprises when they’re dancing.

Seriously, don’t interrupt someone when they’re moving and jiving. Stand back, or go away, until they’re done. Then interrupt later.

The last thing you should ever do in this world is interrupt someone who’s found that thin thread of connection with music, with themselves and their body, and with their soul. The thread won’t last long (it never does), but while it’s there don’t cut it short for them. Let them dance. Let.. them.. dance.

… And we’re not talking about dancing.

Falsely yours,
Mates of State
