What's It All About?

What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?

What if you put your left arm in?  Your left arm.  The one that's not quite as strong as your right arm.  The one that is slightly less toned than you'd like.  The one that held your babies when they were new or let the bat fly after you hit your first home run.  What if you put your arm in and did the best you could with it?  And didn't compare it to all the other arms that were in there?

What if you put your head in?  Your head.  And all the stuff that's in it.  And actually used it.  And began to understand that you don't have to be a chef to cook great food.  And that you don't have to be religious to talk to God.  And that you don't have to be perfect to be pretty damn good.

What if you really put your whole self in?  And shook it all about?  And then you did the Hokey Pokey.  And you turned your self around.

And you turned your life around.

That would be so cool.
