Make a Fool of Yourself 2 September 2015

If you love to sing, dance, paint, write or kick a ball, but you’re no good at it–who cares? If it brings you joy, do it! You might even get better at it.

There is so much room for more joy and  happiness in this life; take advantage of every opportunity to experience elation, glee, even bliss. That isn’t to say that there aren’t places for perfection: a performance on the stage, in a museum, a championship game, dark chocolate desserts! But, for everyday existence, I say sing out at the top of your voice, dance until you drop, paint stick horses all over your room and shoot baskets ’til your arms hurt.IMG_3777

What, you ask, is on my list of delight producing revelry?

playing poker, working on my sequel, finding a pogo-stick, riding our new bike until I can remember the daring kid who rode around with her arms sticking out in the “look ma, no hands” mode, more bareback jumping, hiking in the fall leaves, snow-shoeing, making a cheese soufflé, starting the hit ‘n’ miss engine by myself, more baking, perfecting that decadent chocolate dessert, and because I could go on and on, IMG_3812building something useful out of wood. 

What is on yours?
