Controversial, yet insightful spoken word on the subject of image in an image-obsessed world.

I’ll admit this.  Personally, I bend to the pressures put on me by my surroundings to look a certain way, because people don’t take me seriously if not.  I guess that gives me more reason to love dance and art so much.  The fact that, when I’m dancing, my appearance means much less to me next to the quality of my movement… THAT liberates me.
