Joy and Passion

Years ago, Dirk made a list of things he wanted to do before he dies. He told me to do the same but  I couldn't think of anything that I really wanted to do. Occassionally this still pops in my head as I think of things that I would like to do or accomplish. One of the things that I really want to do is to get back into dancing. I did ballet, tap and jazz as a kid and just stopped. I still to this day wish that I was a dancer. There's a weird, unexplainable happiness that I get when I watch movies like "Singin' in the Rain" or "An American in Paris." I LOVE Gene Kelly!

The other night I heard that Gwyneth Paltrow was going to be on Glee and, although I don't usually watch Glee, I had to record it. I think Gwyneth was stunning. I seriously watch this mash up of Singin' in the Rain and Umbrella at least once a day. I'm lame, I know but it seriously puts a fire in me, a passion. Someday I want to take dance lessons again and become a dancer. It may seem impossible now that I'm an adult but maybe when my kids are older and in school I can make it happen.

For now I'll just live vicariously through this clip:
