Joyously, Drunkenly, Divinely Aware

It's far too easy to sleep walk through life and to be completely self absorbed. I am always grateful to street musicians who bring subway tunnels to life.

There is such happiness and joy on the faces of the people watching as 200 dancers bring Antwerp train station to life. And watching the video started my day off with a smile and a song on my lips.

"The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware." (Henry Miller)

Hi, Penny,

I went searching for Henry Miller's 'aware' quote and found you...then watched the subway dancers/singers. It's just the gift I needed today, the surprise on the faces of the watchers...the joy of the performers...and your own awareness of the importance of sharing. Thank you!
