"Like an animal compelled by the seasons to engage in a course of behavior that it cannot understand, I feel directed to shed my skin, to dance, to burrow in the dirt, to behave like a fool. I don't know why, but something says to me, 'Abandon your pride, drop it, sink it, leave it, be foolish, be indiscreet, shame yourself.' I really don't understand this, but the impulse is overwhelming and I'm going to honor it."
