Life is Like a Dance
I just spent a marvelous, soul-warming few hours with a good friend of mine. We went for lunch to a lovely tea room nestled among pine trees. The place started as a potter's studio and continues to run as one in addition to the restaurant. They actually serve the meals on the potter that they create. In the course of our discussion, my friend imparted something that she had recently heard. She said that instead of looking at life as a journey, we should perhaps regard it as a dance. Sometimes the music changes but we are constantly moving in some way. We may change partners, dance alone or even collide with people but we continue to move to the rhythm. I thought this was a lovely metaphor and could feel the wisdom in it. It reminded me of this piece that I had created a while ago.
