gift in the performance

Reflecting on how I can focus less on sharing on social media but sharing on what’s touched me on here. I realise the most important thing we can give to others is our authentic selves. The beauty I appreciate when I travel is simply observing . Although it is quite touristy, I appreciate hearing the local musicians, dancers, and street performers. My musician therapist friend Gretchen who is an ultimate New Yorker mentioned once hoe grateful she was for performers on subways because they make people happy. Through choosing to harness their voice and bodies, they themselves become instruments of energy and passion that is shared with others. When I travel and I actually see traditional performances , how moving it is to witness tradition and history being translated for you ! So often we pass by them quickly , feeling guilted into giving a tip. But next time observe , feel what’s being shared , and show your gratitude .
