all eyes on me

trying to explain a lion dance to a foreigner is an interesting experience. obviously i know what constitutes the tradition and culture of such an aged practice, and what inelegance it wards off in its superstition it makes up for in its marvellous art and form. so, without the further aid of being present at the event itself, it becomes almost difficult to verbalize the wonders of such a simplistic act.

the truth is, lion dance requires a lot skill. the coordination and trust between the hind and front legs of the pseudo godlike creature is a test of human cooperation. i want to think, that in order to do a great lion dance, you must devote hours of practice into becoming an infallible entity of one. i wonder what its like to try and master this art.

me, i probably couldn’t muster enough will and discipline to ever attempt.

tell me something good
