Left foot out

The man who wrote “The Hokey Pokey” has died.

He was 104. Which is a millennium in hokey pokey  years.

The song was written in 1944. And we’ve all been living with it ever since.

    What if that’s what it REALLY IS all about?

    How did I know Joe would reply to this post?

    I always have trouble with the concept of “Put your whole self in”. Do we really ever have control of our WHOLE self?

  4. Joe Says:

    I believe when the ‘whole self’ is referred to in this context, we are truly speaking of an unobtainable emotional maturity. So Rich, I think you’re onto something.
