    I love the dance. The drumming and singing is electrifying. When I hear it I am brought to life and scared to death. I used to have a cassette tape of this music that I played in my old car. That’s how old my love is, that I drove around Montana in a car with a cassette player, listening to pow wow tapes. There was a big metaphysical mixup where I wasn’t supposed to be who and where I am now, but I am trying to work with the universe to use what was given to me to make things right.
