Joie De Vivre-A A +A
Sunday, December 8, 2013
JOY of living is the meaning of this French phrase.
Yes! Life is the continuing light pulsing through our veins. Our lifestyle is the unforgettable imprint on the hill of our unique journey on earth. Speeding like a roller-coaster ride, we soar high with the winds of excellence and possibilities. In contrast, we inevitably plunge into the roaring sea of chaos when frailties and anxieties flood our shorelines.
What matters most is that in every changing scenario, you and I have a CHOICE.
Every moment I thank our Lord for the gift of free will.
Let us now shift focus to the world of dancing.
We wish to salute Peter de Vera.
Lifting the highlights of the dancing profession to its splendid glory, Peter de Vera exudes ‘joie de vivre’ or the joy of living.
Recently, in recognition of his talents and timeless inspiration, the National Commission on Culture and Arts (NCAA) elected him as its Vice-President for Dance.
What an accolade! Friends soared with happiness upon receiving this news.
In Angeles City, just mention the phrase ‘performing arts’ , immediately, our cabalens (city mates) eyes light up like a Christmas tree as they call out Peter’s name. Synonymous with creativity, commitment and culture, he unleashes the rhythm and movement of the dancing spectacular orbit.
Concomitantly, the Angeles City Tourism Office salutes his genius, goodwill and great terpsichorean prowess.
Kudos to Sir Peter!
Opening the research files, I unearthed this information.
”Dance is a type of art that generally involves movement of the body, often rhythmic and to music. It is performed in many cultures as a form of emotional expression, social interaction, or exercise, in a spiritual or performance setting, and is sometimes used to express ideas or tell a story
Dance may also be regarded as a form of nonverbal communication between humans or other animals, as in bee dances and behavior patterns. Choreography is the art of creating dances.”
As a concluding message, let me praise all our Kapampangan artists who bring joy to our hearts, minds and spirits. Transporting us the highest peak of happiness, they shower us with the sound, sight and scene of goodness.
What a golden Sunday it is when artistry echoes in our life.
