Invigorate Your Life

“Did you have a good world when you died – enough to base a movie on?” Jim Morrison.

Perhaps the most motivating factor of my life has been the desire to taste it like a connoisseur, passionately experiencing the development of a perfect vintage, chocolate and vanilla, sultry like a Flamenco dancer.

Gypsy 05

I’ve lived the life of a gypsy in wanderlust, and like a Midwestern storm chaser I’ve thrown caution to the wind. It’s beautiful out there without a safety net. Try it sometime. You’ll see what I mean.

Here’s a list to get you started.

*Go on an impromptu road trip. (Gypsy Points if you leave in the middle of the night.)

* Dance barefoot in the rain.

* Mark a momentous occasion by getting a tat, a piercing or get a dramatic hair cut. Now take a photo and cherish it always.

* On the fly, throw a party at your place for a friend in need.

* Write a poem. Now go and read it at a local poetry slam. (Gutsy Girl Rawker points for going alone.)

* Take a class for something you’ve always wanted to do.

* Make a daytrip with just your camera and some good tunes.

* Talk to someone you’d normally cross the other side of the street to avoid. Ask questions and really listen.

* Quit your job and do what you really love. The money will follow.
