Body joy

We were early to pick up Boy-o from school, Girlio and I, and we had the opportunity to listen to one of the older students practice an original piano composition (on the piano in the school common area - very cool). Anyways, my Girlio stops a second, takes in the music, and just begins this full-bodied, fearless and intent dancing. It was bloody beautiful.

When do we lose that ability to be spontaneously joyful in our bodies like that? It is a saddening thought.

  1. My L busts a move whenever, wherever there is music. She is 3yrs, 4 months and I don't want it to stop EVER....

  2. Love that. I was with my niece this weekend at the park and she just stopped next to the band playing and starting dancing her face off. Beautiful!

  3. The cool thing is we can reclaim that joy. I am 42 and am known for bursting out in song and dance in the middle of the block just because I can.
