Have I posted yet about dancing? Don't you love to crawl up inside a song, inhabit its space, and let it take over your hips?

This Friday I'm going dancing. Woo-hoo! My hair is gray, and I am a heavy woman. Don't mistake me for a cougar, and don't point and grimace. I will be out there to work up a sweat, to celebrate a band and the songs I love.

I am reminded of a school dance at which the Earth, Wind & Fire song "September" was played, and I spun and spun and spun. I might have been 19. It is important to close your eyes and inhabit that memory.
