My dad, Sarah, and I were hiking through illuminated snow to the caves for new year’s eve. It was either someone’s ephemeral new media project that was creating light patterns on the ground, or the northern lights.
The caves were large and well lit. We sat on the ground and watched the otherworldly dancing. Oliver and Corvas were among the performers, wearing sheer capes over naked bodies. They flipped around, holding their weight on their arms, wiggling their torsos like they didn’t have bones.
Corvas noticed me watching and we made vivid eye contact: he was showing me this secret. It was the best dancing I had ever seen.
It became one of those days where I never fully woke up. The dream colored my day. Now all I want to do is dance like that.
