“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”
Do you love life? What do you do to enhance its beauty? What do you do to bring pure joy into your life?
Music, movement, dance, singing, creating art, and writing, all these things bring me joy. I take classes at the McKinney YMCA, usually kickboxing Monday and Friday, then Zumba Tuesday and Thursday. The music, movement, and dance is sheer exhilaration. Walking every day and taking photos are good for my soul. Then, I love to write. I write this blog, I write poetry and stories and letters and emails. Sometimes I paint, teach others to paint, and share my artwork with others. When I hear music, I dance or I sing, or both.
Yes, I’m in love with life. So many things to love, so many things to do, so little time.
A short snippet from Zumba class today. So, “Shut up and dance with me.”
After a long afternoon walk, I parked my bottom in a chair, sat in the sun, and watched the world go by.
