While Amsterdam had shown me that I didn’t know very much about many things, it did teach me that freedom was worthless without the focus of some passion other than pleasure. I knew that I wanted to make something, something important. I chose dancing as way to make it.
It is the phrase “freedom without focus” (which is not exactly in the text) that caught my attention. And at the end of copying the passage I realize that there is a need for a period of aimless freedom before settling into passion-focused activity.
And so for day 821
