Day 673: Let’s Move/Time of the Season

It’s the time of the season for me to think about moving.  Moving faster while I’m walking, because it’s cold outside. Moving (many seasons from now) away from my beloved hometown of Boston, because it gets so cold for so many months around here.

And just in time for the cold weather yesterday, both of these tunes came to play:

(Kurt Elling and Cassandra Wilson moving through “Time of the Season” found here on YouTube)

Imagine my hearing those songs as I moved yesterday, as fast as I could, through the freezing wind on my walk through Boston. If you’re moved to listen to either of those, do they move you?  I, personally, found that music very warming.

Let’s move back in time, just a little. Here’s what I saw minutes before I started that cold walk yesterday, during this time of the season:

Notice how the door of that garage where I park my car every work day has moved? When I asked about that, the answer was, “It’s coooooold in here.”

As I moved to work on my walk yesterday, I considered taking more photos, but it was too coooooold for me to stop.

As we move on to winter, yesterday’s cold will feel like …. warmth.

Let’s move on to more pleasant matters, shall we?  This evening, I’ll be moving westward to Worcester, Massachusetts, USA.

Yes, after I move to vote, somehow, in the yearly election today and also move through a full day at work, I’ll be watching these people move tonight:

It’s the time of the season for me to see some of my favorite dancers from one of my favorite TV shows.

(10 of the dancers I’m going to see tonight, here on YouTube)

They sure can move, can’t they? Also, it moved me, this morning, to hear the word “care” in the introduction.

Another warming thought for me: As the days move further into cold, I get to see Pat Metheny and Antonio Sanchez, at the same Worcester venue, in less than two weeks!

What else do I want to say about “Let’s Move” in this season (or any other season)?

At work and elsewhere, people are moving in lots of different directions. The best I can do is notice, be honest about what I see, and be clear about ways that I want to move.

Let’s take a moment and breathe.

Ready?

Let’s move!

Thanks to all who move, in their own way (including you!).

  1. Cool music warms the soul 🙂 Have lots of warming fun tonight!

  2. Moving into cold here, too. People think Arizona is hot or at least warm, and it is sometimes. Today the thermometer has moved below freezing.
    I, too, will move away from my beloved town. I moved to this area 41 years ago. But I hope to move to Mexico in the next few years. I’m moved to do so for the culture, people, beauty, friendliness, food and safety. (Yes, safety. Violent crime is still lower there than in the US.)
    Enjoy tonight!

  3. Busy day, but what a way to end it! Enjoy the performance tonight!

  4. Moving post, Ann. Worcester venue has it going on for you this fortnight!

    Enjoy the dance as you warm up for your alltime entertainment leader, Mr. Metheny.

  5. Ann, I have experienced that Boston Coooooooooold that you spoke about. I was visiting my brother in Mass. He, his wife, their daughter, my mom and I went to the Prudential buliding for lunch and site seeing. It was in January. As we walked from the car to the entrance the wind was blowing so hard, I had to fight through the freezing temps, wearing crutches and braces. It felt like knives going through me. The water from the fountain outside was being blown against the windows and freezing as it hit.
    Thanks for the reminder.
    -Alan

  6. I think I am moved around too much reading the post 🙂

  7. My internet connectionis moving veeeery slowly and I am moving veeeeery fast to both keep warm and clean my house, and cook cakes for my book launch on Saturday – a writer’s life is very varied.

    • Cakes and book launch …what a delicious combination! Congratulations and thank you, Hilary, for taking the time to visit (which I find moving).
