I see a spark of life shining
I hear a young minstrel sing
Beautiful roaring scream
Of joy and sorrow,
So extreme
There is a love in me raging
A joyous,
Magical feeling

It is good to be greeted by an uplifting song upon waking up. I googled and learnt that Alegria means a joyful state of mind in Spanish. Yes, as the lyrics goes, there is a spark of life shining in us. The music, the minstrel in us, the love in us raging – a joyous magical feeling – can be heard by the universe. We are both divine and human, an expression of joy and sorrow in our ongoing existence, creating meaning and beauty in the music and dance of life.
