A most interesting question, Grace. You do manage to tap into the very essence of life!
My own life needs a continual sense of purpose. What it happens to be at any one time mostly tries to satisfy my emotions, my mental energy, what inspires me..... or just life's essentials, like finding good company, having the right food in my belly.
However, one of the most wonderful, enjoyable things of life, for me, is seeing a young person find his or her vacation.
One such person is Gert van Hoef, a young organist of the Netherlands.
Please, anyone, do simply use your search engine and look/listen to some of his performances. I have just been listening for the past 2 hours. He enthralls me! If you can, listen with a good pair of headphones.
And then tell me you are not also uplifted by his talent.
It gives me inspiration and joy, like this is what life is meant to be for.
