Dancing For the Life of It
“Dance as if no one is watching!” Now where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it’s part of a Mark Twain quote. But I digress. I am only a dancing statue but if I were flesh and blood …
… you’d find me running barefoot through open fields and meadows. I’d be scaling the tallest majestic mountains, breathing in the beauty of never-ending surrounding vistas.
If I were alive I’d swim to the bottom of the ocean, meet mysterious creatures residing in the murky, dark and sometimes luminous “other worlds” of the ocean’s depths.
Being on earth as a human, I’d explore, without hesitation, the wonder and uniqueness of every single living entity … and glory in its creation. I’d meet as many forms of life in the wild and learn of their ways in nature. I’d embrace the natural behavior and order of things. And after I had done all those things … I’d dance … because I have the gift of life!
Thanks for stopping by and reading, I hope your enjoyed.

Even if he (she?) doesn’t dance, at least he (she?) has a great imagination!
This is certainly true Caerlynn. An imagination is a very good thing, I think!

Thank you. I’m so glad you did. It’s a good way to feel! 🙂
I enjoyed that. Every time I see something about dance, I am reminded of Leonard Cohen’s dance Me to The End of Love. A great story Penny
Thanks Alastair, I love that song! esp. when he’s doing the singing, well speak-singing! 🙂
