The show just reinforces the hope in me that dreams do come true. They don't have an expiration date. I have only been writing in earnest since the end of 2009. With each poem, each story, each blog I find myself believing I have just touched the fountain of dreams within me.
This week I heard a fourteen year old contestant on X factor, Drew Rynewicz, sing the song What a Feeling. It is from the movie Flashdance. I have always loved Irene Cara's version of the song, yet hearing Drew sing it in her unique voice touched me deeply.
Well I hear the music,
Close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around, take a hold of my heart
What a feeling, bein’s believin’
I can have it all,
Now I’m dancing for my life
Take your passion, and make it happen
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life
The lyrics have such power in them, "What a feeling, bein's believin' I can have it all----take your passion, and make it happen." What a message for anyone, everyone, to take deep inside and believe it. Why not dance for your life in a literal or metaphorical sense?
Yes, I am dreaming, believing, dancing with my passion which is writing. There is that within me that seeks expression, freedom. I am not sure where this journey is taking me. I know whoever reads this is part of my dream. My words have reached you.
