    Our First Dance

    I remember our first dance.  We had been invited by one of our favorite local musicians to a dance party at a venue in town.  There was quite a crowd there.  Anyway, we had a blast.  We had never really danced together before.  I was really impressed.  She says she's not...

    Joyful

    It was the first summer I was a camp counsellor in upstate New York, and being from Wales I am used to a lot of rain. It hadn't rained for 6 weeks which is good (less bugs) and bad - cos it hadn't rained for 6 weeks. I love being in the rain and going for long walks in it...

    Let's Do It Again!

    I grew up beside six boys... the second youngest was my best friend.  Whenever there was a sun shower he'd be banging at my door telling me it was time. I loved it, we'd dance in the middle of the street and just have so much fun playing!  I'm thinking that next time it rains I...

    Whenever it rains, I like to go out and dance in it. Extremely freeing and exciting with lighting or not.

    Summer Camp Square Dancing

    We would square dance at the camp I went to... and one summer it was simply pouring down rain.  There was no thunder or lightning, so the director had us out there, dancing through the puddles!  We all laughed ourselves silly, and loved just about every second of it.

    Myrtle Turtle

    Every year, kind of as a tradition, my family and I and some family friends, always go to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in August. Usually when we go there's always a hurricane about to come so we get all the pre-weather. And I remember my friend Victoria and I were just coming in...
