What makes rhythm a rhythm and dancer a dancer?
When I was becoming a personality, my favorite pick-up line was "What kind of music do you like?". I was hoping to find companionship with it and shine with my wide knowledge about sub-cultures. Melody and rhythm came always first then lyrics and meaning. Then I travelled above culture-spaces trying to find the rhythm that is really mine. I was rather Nordic orientated. And I found myself comparing the moment of now and the situations in the past when I met the same rhythm the first time. The honesty, seriousness and thoughts that I have now in comparison with me back in time and then again time forward and again time back and forward, back-forward, FF>REWFF>FF...What rhythm to follow then? Maybe it is the beat of my heart, maybe footsteps, maybe the repetition of failures, maybe the ambition of going one phrase further with every day.
