(I had been listening to Lee Ann Womack’s recording of “I Hope You Dance” and this occurred to me)
I hope you dance…oh.my.gosh! The song lyrics are beautiful and speak to all of us. I wanted to post it on Facebook for all of you to hear because I can’t think of a better way to express how I feel about all of you. And dancing says so much doesn’t it? Dancing isn’t just the act of getting out on the floor and shaking what you’ve got or holding a partner close and swaying. Dancing is living life, dancing is expression, dancing is release, dancing is feeling! I am soooo long in learning soooo much… But! Every once in awhile I get it right! If I live life to the best of my ability… I dance! If I feel pain to the core of my being… I dance! If I can be moved by music or a painting or devastated by a loss… I AM DANCING!! Because I am allowing life to flow through me… the good and the bad – and I grow and I live and I continue to love and I exist!!! And yes… life is rough right now, but damn it!! I AM DANCING!!!! That is my choice to make and I am choosing to dance the “can-can”!!
