“True love will always find it’s way back, and if it doesn’t, then it’s not where it should be in the first place. You don’t need to chase love, it will find you if it’s meant to.”–Blaze Olamiday
I just returned from a much needed escape to southern California. It’s been a bear of a winter here in Chicago…I was feeling like a bear in hibernation. I would have been far more productive had I slept through this winter of discontent…but it’s March and the sun is shining brightly outside my window.
As I walked the beach in Del Mar I was in awe of the beautiful sand formations I saw. It felt like I was in this incredible art gallery of stunning organic masterpieces. The surf playing nice with the sand. The days when it was sunny and calm, the formations had smooth fluid movement in them and on the stormy days they had sharper edges with bursts of movement. It really is so much like the ebb and flow of my life. When things are calm and collected in my world…it feels like I am dancing along with Pharrell in his “Happy” video. On the flip side of this I feel like I’m singing along with Peggy Lee as we lament the words of her song..”Is this all there is”
When I look at this photo it reminds me that even in the storms of life…LOVE always finds its way back to me! So today I will sing and dance with Pharrell and Peggy. There is love just around us…not need to chase it….embrace it…celebrate it…rock it…dance it out with abandon. Throw me your happy hat Pharrell. Peggy had it right too..Is this all there is, Is this all there is..if this is all there is then let’s keep dancing. Let’s break out the booze and have a ball.
