embrace “NOW”

Good morning, did you actually watch the video. My Mother was hooked on old movies, especially the ones with song and dance numbers.

My friends I love them all. Each one of t hem has a different “musical” bent, and personally I love them all. (not at the same time =^_^= .. But I do enjoy the many different “vibes”.

I never did get to line dance, but I have friends that are crazy crazy for the activity. I’ve been going back over some of my favourite tunes, and realize that i do enjoy the foot tapping songs. They are happy and put me in a good mood. Can’t help but get up and boogie or sit in my chair and do some “chair stomping”

Hopefully one of the above clips will have you wanting to get up and move. These past months, weeks and days, so many of us are not get getting out and moving around like we used to. We do need to move, and we need to drink a lot of water. Two things so easy to do, but.. for some reason, we don’t get to follow through on our good intentions.

Embracing the moment, is important now more than ever. We are all in this together. These times of “unknowns”… we need to be supportive of each other. Listen carefully to our friends, and do our best to understand, what their “moments” are really like.

This next song is just because, I really love listening to it.. =^_^=

Thank you all for spending this time with me… I hope one of the tunes, gave you a moment of pleasure. Music is a form a “therapy”.. dancing is “therapy”…. give yourself some pleasure today, you deserve it. Make your own”music”. move in a way that embraces all the love and joys you could ever want. Create your own “NOW”

Don’t allow anyone or anything put you in a box or on a shelf. Life is for living.

As we drove along, the winding road seemed to disappear into a wall of fog.  There was a surreal atmosphere of quiet that wrapped itself around the truck.  We paused in our conversation to take notice of our surroundings.

Suddenly ahead we saw flashing lights.  2 men were standing by a truck, the drivers side door was open.  One man wore a bright yellow vest with a big fluorescent red X emblazoned on his back.  As we watched, he helped the other man put ona imiliar vest..  Ahead of the stopped truck was a big lit up panel blocking the way,  It too sported a big red X.

Slowing down, my husband rolled down his window… the one man who was already dressed in the special outfit, walked over to the truck, asking us where we were headed. When told where we were headed, he said, that we could go no further on the road we were on, but needed to take a detour that would be identified  when we turned the truck around.

My husband ever the news-hound, asked for information, and surprisingly we were told that there was a man with a weapon barricaded up ahead, and the whole area was cordoned off…  As we made our way to the detour, we thought about what we had been told.   Here we were out for a leisurely drive, content in our “world” and minutes away, was a very serious scene being played out.  Children were involved, the “suspect” was holed up in an area very close to a school.

This is very serious, we knew it was happening, but there was nothing we could do but proceed with our own “day” and let the “drama” play out as it may.  This was early afternoon, we later heard on the news, that the incident ended shortly after 5, no one was injured.  Maybe not physically, but what kind of “mental” stress was placed on the people who were involved in the incident.

On our way back, the fog had lifted, and the sun was shining.  It brought home for me, how important it is to live each moment with appreciation.  We never know what is around the corner.

NB* we had a wonderful drive, the detour proved to be a meandering back road that was delightful. WE did get to Montebello, my sister, was able to tick the destination off of her to see list. In life, there is always BALANCE . and as noted, by the time we were heading back, the sun was shining and skies were blue.
