Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them. – Marcus Aurelius

“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them” – Marcus Aurelius

How do you interpret Marcus Aurelius’ poetic phrase “running with the stars”?

I interpret it to mean when you have absolute no tension in yourr body and joy in your heart and soul.

That for me would be it used to be playing my upright grand piano or writing a new piece of music or a new musical composition-lyrics & music in endless combinations. Now it is having an eye for the special in the ordinary..and writing and embelling what I write with the photos I take..sometime the other way around. Another simple joy is when I see a photo emerge in my mind’s eye, as though I am looking through my Nikon camera….like here on Christmas night…

Walking the pier-any pier-and breathing in the sea air and seeing the seagulls soar, or creating a dish that people can enjoy all over the world.
That is how I “run with the stars”….

How do you?

When was the last time you “ran with the stars”, so to speak, as Marcus Aurelius so poetically said?
