“Dancing is my obsession. My life.” – Mikhail Baryshnikov
The Blogtember challenge was to write about a memory that I would like to relive. It has been difficult to decide on just one memory. The memory that I would like to relive is all about dancing and handsome men.
Many years ago, I went to Barrister Hall with some friends to listen to a Salsa band. An acquaintance of my friend asked me to dance. I started to refuse his offer because I did not know how to Salsa. He said that he would show me – so we danced. I’m not sure how we looked. I like to think that we were fabulous! We were dancing in the moment and not for anyone. I was dancing with a very handsome man, which was a bonus. He taught me so much about what it’s really like to dance with a partner. After that night, dancing seemed different – maybe not as unsophisticated.
This memory also reminds me that I need to find a new place with a Salsa band. 🙂

Dancing and roller skating. It’s been a journey watching my kids learn to dance and roller skate. I’m so glad that they’ve enjoyed the journey so far.
