Life’s hard times

Joan C. King

In her book of poetry
“Hard times require furious dancing”
Alice Walker tells us
about love, life, cruelty and more
the things we encounter in life.

The title grabs me.
We all encounter hard times.
These are times of GIANT opportunity
to expand the expression of
WHO we are!

We are MORE than
we imagine ourselves to be!
Maybe, if we take Alice Walker’s advice
and furiously dance
through the hard times
we will crack open their gifts
embedded in their core!

There are many ways to dance
that do not require music
or a dance floor.
Dance to the rhythm of life
within you,
surging through you,
enlivening you,
even in the hard times!

Let’s DANCE!
