Tarantism is the word to describe the uncontrollable urge to dance – originally thought to be the result of a tarantula bite. Like dark clouds making their way through the sky, shadows skimming over the world below, sometimes inspiration comes thundering across the fields, through the towns, right into your heart. No spiders necessary.
