In a break-dance class I took a few years ago, we were told that the big moves are made bigger by having a tighter center. The power of all kicks, spins and swipes comes from being grounded and focused around a square inch of floor; an anchor for the furthest reaches and extensions of motion exploding around it.

Expanding on that idea, it seems like the most power would come from having a focused center within yourself. I love the idea of that sort of magic. Of knowing exactly where to look within yourself to be able to draw upon memories and sensations closest to your heart – to be able to summon the lightness of jumping, the giddiness of being silly, the serenity of beautiful music and emotion, the strength and guidance of God.
