"Creatures" says the ant to the grasshopper, who in his misery has begged for a crumb of bread. And so the little grasshopper dances. Maybe she'd touch the ant's heart?
She dances on one leg, she dances on her hands, she dances on her head, she dances for her life, she dances with death. She dances the dance of all creatures. The dance of existence.
Everybody dances it in his her its own way. As well, as beautifully, as creatively as he she it possibly can.
To please the one or ones who our existence or non-existence in this world depends on.
So that they let us live. Us, the creature. Us, the creation...
