When you dance, your purpose
is not to get to a certain
place on the floor. It’s to enjoy
each step along the way.
If I Were
There are lots of ways to dance
and to spin, sometimes it just
starts my feet first then my entire body,
I am spinning no one can see it
but it is happening. I am so glad to be alive,
I am so glad to be loving and loved.
Even if I were close to the finish, even if
I were at my final breath,
I would be here to take a stand,
bereft of such astonishments,
but for them.
~Excerpt from a poem
by Mary Oliver
Again you will take up your timbrels and go out to dance with the joyful. ~Excerpt from Jeremiah 31:4 ✝
