"The urge... to dance outdoors, to mock the powerful and embrace perfect strangers is not easy to suppress... The capacity for collective joy is encoded into us... Why not reclaim our distinctively human heritage as creatures who generate their own ecstatic pleasures out of music, color, feasting, and dance... just the chance, which we need much more of on this crowded planet, to acknowledge the miracle of our simultaneous existence with some sort of celebration." ~Barbara Ehrenreich, *Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy
