Song and Dance

Life is enough of a difficult performance for me to get through without making a big song and dance about it: I’m altogether more subtle in my approach.

It’s not always that I don’t want to participate, either, it’s just that I want to join in my own way. I don’t necessarily want to be the principal player but I’ll be an enthusiastic member of the chorus. I don’t ever want to be the prima ballerina, but will happily take my place in the corps de ballet.

If I was to shine my own light, I’d always choose to be a single small candle glowing courageously in the wings rather than a dazzling diva chandelier demanding centre stage.
