Nope, not any time soon for me. Maybe one day I will dance again but right now I am wide awake when I should be asleep. I actually spent an hour going through Netflix to find a movie to fall asleep to. I chose one of my all time favorite movies, Dirty Dancing. I think it was the movie that I fell in love with Patrick Swayze more than anything else.
The ending inspired me to write. I had a request from the editor over at A String of Pearls, Jane. She wanted a follow article about how I intend to continue on our path and bit a more. I am sure she will realize that she is working with a certifiably insane person. Back to the inspiration, it wasn’t just when Johnny Castle stands there and says “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” It was that final song that inspired me to write, “The Time of Life.”
It brought forth a lot of pent up emotions. It brought back memories of dancing in the living room after the kids went to bed. Anyone that knew Jay well knows that he couldn’t dance. Though he did dance with me publicly once, it was at my brother’s wedding. One of the happiest moments in my life actually. But we did dance privately and that was one of our favorite songs to dance to. My feet were always sore afterwards from him stepping on them but it was worth every minute of it.
Thinking about those memories, inspired not only to write that article but to let go of some fear. I could hear Jay singing and then laughing as I attempted to sing. It has left short a half a roll of toilet paper and exhausted. But feeling a little bit more alive, not just existing and going through the motions.
Let’s see how well tomorrow plays out after I get some sleep.
Light, Love and Peace.
