Besides writing, I wondered, what the heck kind of journey am I on?
This morning, I woke up with the organ prologue to Prince's classic Let's Go Crazy humming through my head.
It was almost as though the Man in Purple had come to my bedroom for an intervention:
"If the elevator tries to bring your down," he reminded me. "Go crazy, punch a higher floor."
Aaahh. Right. Higher Floor!
Don't ask why (creative brains are fascinating places), but it made me think of my Word of the Year--MMM. Movement, Making, and Meditation (yes, I cheated on that one). I've had varying success these last six months in focusing on MMM each day, but I think acting on my MMM is equivalent to me punching a higher floor, picking myself up by the bootstraps, and going after my dreams.
So my journey lens will be focused on my efforts to meditate, to move, and to make.
MMM, so good.
And one last thought before signing off. Sometimes things don't make sense, like this lyric in Let's Go Crazy:
"Let's look for the purple banana/Til' they put us in the truck, let's go!"
Seriously, have you have really listened to that song?
Inquiring minds want to know: what life journey are you on?
