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:
(Pat Metheny’s “Let’s Move” 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.
Thanks to all who move, in their own way (including you!).
