Float like a butterfly…

A fight is won or lost far from witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym, on the road, long before I dance under the lights. – Muhammad Ali

This wonderful and inspiring quote requires no explanation. We know that it speaks to practice, conditioning, spiritual and emotional centering, preparation on every level. It also assumes giftedness, evidenced by the desire to do. Your “need” to sing is evidence of your gift.

The fruit of thorough, consistent preparation is spontaneous and free “play” in the ring or on the stage. No boxer has surpassed Ali’s grace, skill, freedom, and effectiveness in the ring. We know why.
