4 years ago when I got sober I rarely went to bars and clubs. Finally one night Maurice and I went dancing (I love to dance). During our dancing the 1979 hit came on called “Born to be Alive” by Patrick Hernandez. We danced and swayed and then I started listening to the words “born to be alive” played repeatedly. I realized for the first time in a long while I was no longer surviving – I was living. I began laughing and crying right there on the spot. The feeling of joy overwhelmed me. It was a breakthrough moment in my life. Whenever I hear the song today it takes on that special meaning today. The song is repetitious but I never get tired of hearing it.
Any other moments of clarity out there to share? I’d love to read them.
I’m feeling depressed today, so I don’t have any witicisms or funny tales to tell, so I’ll try to make it up by a video that makes me laugh. It’s not horrible but it’s the lack of enthusiasm from Hernandez is very odd. Wow, videos have come a long way.
