My shoes are too tight.
– Excuse me?
Something my father said. He was old, very old at the time. I went into his room, and he was sitting alone in the dark, crying. So I asked him what was wrong, and he said, „My shoes are too tight, but it doesn’t matter, because I have forgotten how to dance.“ I never understood what that meant until now. My shoes are too tight, and I have forgotten how to dance.
