While drinking my warm cup of tea, I found this link on Facebook and a rush of feelings came with it. Footloose sparked a memory of my younger self. I can remember dancing to it and feeling the freedom of youth. Damn I could dance... actually I still can! There was something so powerful about seeing this young man dance for a cause, that it triggered a generation of people to be foot loose and just dance for the sheer enjoyment of movement.
Watching this video today was actually a call to action for me to do something about getting back to the innocence of who I was back then before so many things happened to dull my spark. He looked like he never aged and that is enough to make me want to join a gym. He is 55 years old, only two years younger than me and he can still dance like that young kid who made my heart beat just a bit quicker back then. Watching him in this Jimmy Fallon video brought a tear and quickened my heart again. He still has the moves and the smile to go with it. I think the message here is ... who says a few grey hairs ( or more) and a few bumps and bruises along the way of life can stop the dancing... jump back
