I cracked a pair of sticks last night for the first time since 2011 or 2012. I really don't understand why I quit practicing freehanding on the norm for so long. Perhaps its because I started listening to other genres of music that don't inspire me to dance so much. I love those other genres, but they don't have that beat, flow and beauty of EDM that drives me to move to the music. I love glowsticking so much. It's such a great way for me to express myself and it's so beautiful and feels so freaking fantastic - and it's great exercise to boot.
Once I cracked the sticks last night I found that I just couldn't stop. I practiced for hours. I remembered why I put so many thousands of hours of practice into this art. It's a part of who I am. Just like painters can't help but paint, bodybuilders can't help but work out, etc, glowsticking is something that's embedded so deep in my soul that once I got going it all came back to me and I did not want to stop. I'm a bit rusty now, and sore too from so much exercise I'm no longer used to doing regularly. My left hand doesn't want to hit the angles I worked for years training it to do. But that will change. Once I shake some of the rust off I'll start posting videos again.
Just thought I would share my excitement at diving back into this wonderful art.
