The title of my blog was sort of inspired by the film “Run Lola Run”. It really came to me because I wanted a short title with the word “dance”, maybe my name and no more than 3-4 words. It’s pretty to the point.
Then I started reading on the Wikipedia page about the movie’s themes. According to the page, “The film touches on themes such as free will vs. determinism, the role of chance in people’s destinies…” This is where I start to get a but philosophical … I have the free will to choose to dance, even starting this “late” in life. Determinism to me is basically destiny or fate, which I feel like dancing has that kind of role in my life. Finally, the role of chance. I’m taking chances here. I could very well live my life saying, “I wish I would’ve danced” the whole time and regret not pursuing it on my 85th birthday. Or I can take a chance now and see where I go.
So I didn’t know it until reading that page, that my blog’s title is pretty darn perfect for me right now. And that’s my story about the title 🙂
