True confession time: when my son was small, we were a Barney, yes the big purple dinosaur, kind of household for a time. As the amazingly agile and light-footed dinosaur would sing and dance his way through thirty minutes of Barney-world scenarios, things seemed lighter, happier, not so serious.
As an admitted music junkie and an amazingly avid dance fan (for someone who can’t dance 🙂 ), I think Barney’s on to something. I feel the same way when I watch The Muppet Movie and see everyone singing and dancing through the town, “Life’s a Happy Song.” Before I know it, I’m singing along and bopping my head like nobody’s business. I watch “Riverdance” and “Lord of the Dance” and related hard-shoe fantasticness and any sense of doom and gloom I might have felt prior lifts right away.
So to begin your weekend off right, and to put a spring in your step and a song in your heart….here’s your jumpstart. Slainte, Lisa
P.S. If you start singing Barney or Kermit songs today, hold your head high and sing loud! 😉
