Dylan February 2013

Dylan St. John, age 8, 02-13

I was listening to the song Dancing Daze by the Avett Brothers while driving Dylan to his Waldorf camp with Miss Monique this morning. So grateful that after a very serious childhood and early adulthood, I too am finally learning how to dance my days.

And Dylan is the ultimate inspiration for me. These lyrics fit him to a T. How do you do it, Dylan? Your mom is so grateful for you and all of your dancing ways. It’s our birthday month, and you were my birthday presentmy very best everin 2004.

How you have changed my life, sweet dancing boy. This is for you. xo

Dancing Daze, The Avett Brothers

I’ve seen the way you deal with things
The troubles that this life will bring
If it gets to you then I can’t tell by the way you sing
You act like it just doesn’t mean a thing

I see you dancin all your, dancin all your, dancin all your daze
Maybe you can tell me how it is you got that way
Dancing all your, dancing all your, dancing all your daze
Come on, come on that’s got to be the way

There’s all these things that get me down
This dirty world is full of clowns
They’ll build you up just so they can knock you down
Laugh at you while you’re there on the ground

But not you…

I really like the way it feels
I look at you and it’s real

I see you dancin all your, dancin all your, dancin all your daze
Maybe you can tell me how it is you got that way
Dancing all your, dancing all your, dancing all your daze
Come on, come on that’s got to be the way
