I have a question for you, and I’m interested to hear your reply. What makes you feel alive?
I’ve been thinking about this ever since I heard an interview with Michael Moore on Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! show. Michael makes me feel alive, because he’s an eternal optimist and he has some good ideas about how we can repair our world.
Even though I don’t follow the news, I still hear about it, and it’s never good news, is it? Things are looking kind of bleak, and I’ve been slipping into a malaise. But when I heard Michael talk, I could feel the electric spark of possibilities. It felt like the 1960s again, and I was alive.
This sensation was in stark contrast to how I’d been feeling before, and it got me thinking about what else makes me feel alive. What do I need in order to stay afloat?
You may or may not like Michael Moore, and it doesn’t really matter. I want to know what makes you feel alive? I’d enjoy hearing your thoughts. You can share them with us in the comments section below.
May you feel vividly alive in the new year! Wishing you all the best for 2020.
With love and appreciation,
