Murakami

If dance I must, then dance I will.

“Dance,” said the Sheep Man. “You gotta dance. As long as the music plays. You gotta dance. Don’t even think why. Start to think, your feet stop. Your feet stop, we get stuck. We get stuck, you’re stuck. So don’t pay any mind, no matter how dumb. You gotta keep the step. You gotta limber up. You gotta loosen what you bolted down. You gotta use all you got.

We know you’re tired, tired and scared. Happens to everyone, okay? Just don’t let your feet stop.”

(Murakami, 1994)
