I remember dancing to this in my bedroom. And feeling very cool that I was into a Brit group. My hair would whip around as I danced in glee. Especially at the bridge part of the song. Like it that it makes me want to dance the night away and love it because it asks such a sweet question: where is the tenderness?
Tenderness, thoughtfulness, kindness — all of them — where is it? How can I practice it today, tomorrow, this week? I made a choice to be tender with myself today. A good friend died and I decided to not bounce back from being down about her being gone. There’s no need to rush myself into feeling at peace with her being gone. I’m being tender about my sadness and longing that she was still here.
