The music has changed. The beat has risen. Boom. Boom. Music fills the room, bursts out through slits in the window. She has traveled through a myriad of emotions and memories this morning through the many musical choices she has slipped in and out of the music player.

Her body first connects with the music through a pit in her stomach and then as the selections change, she feels a rise that enters through her toes, and then different parts of her body begin acting of their own accord: her legs, her hips, her arms, her head, her skin. She is practically dancing in her chair, ready to break out and dance around, losing herself for these few moments before the rest of the day begins.
