Dance Like No-one’s Watching

Be as you want to be – sing, breathe, cry and love as you were born to love – never stop moving – never give-up – take every moment, every chance, and seize life’s little Romance…

Nothing has to be boring, never a moment has to be dull. Life decides the destinations, be WE decide the pathways… and I personally like to dance down my pathways…

People will tell you – you can’t do this – you can’t do that – you’re too old – you’re too young… I’ve never really paid much attention to what people say.

Learn to Live!



Canterbury is one of my favourite English cities. Small, historic, quaint, cobbled streets – reminds me much of Florence. And once you’ve lived in a place like Florence – it never leaves you. Florence taught me to be myself – to dance – to sing. The modern world owes much to cities like Florence.

I was having a meal in Canterbury recently – at my favourite Moroccan place downtown – it was raining heavily – and so I took the opportunity to step outside and dance around by the Pilgrim’s Gateway. People were walking past, their hoods up and their heads down – a bit confused – occasionally someone saying ‘nice one!’ or something equally sarcastic, but probably wishing they had the guts to do something like that. Not that I was doing anything particularly extraordinary – no less extraordinary than feeling totally free, being unapologetically myself, living arbitrarily – without inhibitions. Is that  really extraordinary??

But it was obvious – they were the ones having a bad time, not me!

Do something that scares you, everyday – something simple, but something that will ultimately make you happy. Surprise yourself. It’s never too late to change your life. Once you’ve silenced that little voice that says “you can’t do that” – you’ll never be stopped by it EVER again. Do it. I dare you! Why ever not???

You may just make yourself smile…
