Hard Times Require Furious Dancing — by Alice Walker

Post by Welles » Tue Sep 10, 2019 6:52 pm

This is a fascinating perspective most eloquently expressed.
I am the youngest of eight siblings. Five of us have died. I share losses, health concerns, and other challenges common to the human condition, especially in these times of war, poverty, environmental devastation, and greed that are quite beyond the most creative imagination. Sometimes it all feels a bit too much to bear. Once a person of periodic deep depressions, a sign of mental suffering in my family that affected each sibling differently, I have matured into someone I never dreamed I would become: an unbridled optimist who sees the glass as always full of something. It may be half full of water, precious in itself, but in the other half there’s a rainbow that could exist only in the vacant space.

I have learned to dance.

:bana: a little of a coincidence for me here with this article as only yesterday my next door neighbour told me she "danced her way through the change of life." (literally :) ) Dancing huh? Well dang! worth a try. :bana:

Here's to happy feet! :cheers: Thanks Welles!

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.

Welles,
Just saw this. It was beautiful.
