Life is a Dance

I love to see a beautifully choreographed dance with highly trained and disciplined dancers. It’s magical, spectacular and awe inspiring. But I also love to see spontaneous dance, natural dance, people just enjoying the moment and expressing themselves to the beat of music. There is an enormous range of dance possibilities between these two extremes,…

Create The Day – With Creative Movement

We’re always going here and there, doing this and that; right? We move about doing things from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep. Maybe we even move in our sleep. So why do we need more movement? Some people would advocate for more rest and relaxation, and sometimes that…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Friendship

My long time friend who fits into almost every category of friendship I’ve mentioned below. Create The Day With Friendship Such a wide topic for a single photograph, there are so many types of friends and all have value one way or another. I decided to combine the weekly photo challenge with my weekly Create The Day post,…

Create The Day – With A Break

Yes, take a break now and then, a break from the hectic pace of life. I’m not talking about an all out vacation, that’s different because a lot of planning and activity usually goes into vacations. I also don’t mean a 15 minute coffee break at work. What I mean is to stop all activity…

Create The Day With A Little Help

Everyone needs a little help now and then. If someone were to say, “I don’t need any help, ever, from anyone”, well they would just be lying – to their self as well as to whomever they were saying this too. It’s just a fact of life that human existence is dependent on helping one another. Don’t…

Create The Day With Your Imagination

Quite frankly you know, sometimes I just get bored, dreadfully bored doing mundane day to day tasks that never change. I get bored living in the same place, driving down the same streets and shopping at the same stores. I get bored at work and even surfing the internet. Is boredom an inevitable part of…

Create The Day By Sharing

There are a lot of things that we can share with others as we go through life that might be of value to someone. My philosophy is that it’s good for the soul to share what you care about, what is valuable to you. One way or another I believe we are all here to…

Create The Day For Mom

Obviously we all know what’s coming – Mother’s day. It’s that wonderful day of the year that  we shower our mothers with cards, flowers, candy or other gifts in an effort to show our appreciation for her years of love, sacrifice, devotion and caring. Some people might look forward to celebrating this day, and others may…

Create The Day – By Letting Go

  How does one create the day by letting go? A strange concept that came to my mind late last night after I realized that I had failed to create this post on Tuesday as scheduled. My thought was not just, “Oh well, I’ll do it tomorrow”, but it was more of a reflection of…

Create The Day – With A Smile

A simple random thought or memory draws the corners of my mouth up a bit, and my son might ask, “What are you smiling at?” The twittering of a bird on a tree branch outside my front door draws my attention; I gaze silently smiling as I watch his uncontrollable song. My cat jumps from the table…

Create The Day – With Plan B, C, D or G

We make plans and try our best to follow through, doing things well in the process. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out, so there is plan B, or C or D and so on. It’s necessary to be flexible and adaptable enough to deal with the unplanned obstacles that seem to divert our path. When my daughter…

Create The Day With Hope

Spring is hopeful, the weather is warming and everything is blooming. Most people feel a renewed sense of wonder or happiness, especially the people living in a place that has cold, gray winters. Finally we can start getting our daily dose of Vitamin D naturally and get rid of the SAD. However, all the vitamin…
