    You Call That Dancing??

    When I was growing up, the grade school in my town had "dances" for the students. They would hire a local band, or a DJ, and we'd all show up whether or not we intended to dance.  I remember the dance floor being populated predominately by girls.  The boys drifted to the side...

    Once Upon A Time In Costa Rica.....

    ......on government business, I danced with a beautiful, shapely woman in a skirt slit up to here and a blouse cut down to there in a night club virtually devoid of light. The excitement would have been visible with light and the sounds she made were drowned out by the music. But...

    I can't dance to save my life! But we all remember the end of the party. And how good it feels if you have somebody you can dance with when the slow numbers come on.

    I love to feel the music course through my body. To sway in time with it. Close my eyes and float away on the notes. I may not dance well, but I love to live in the moment.
