Ever since I ran down the hall each Saturday morning,
after watching American Bandstand,
to lock myself in my bedroom
to practice all of the latest dance moves
in front of the mirror,
I have loved to dance.
I still do.
There is just one problem.
The opportunities to do so
are almost non-existent
in my day to day world
(other than wedding receptions-
where the guests should be a little lower profile).
So traditionally, when schedules permit,
This morning as I write this,
while drinking my Louisiana Community Club coffee,
(which may be a truth serum!),
I want to say thank you-
*to my husband -
who has never tethered my needs or interests,
who gets it that Motown runs in my veins,
who has always been a willing partner,
and most of my other adventures,
*to my daughters-
*who don’t roll their eyes
*who have Motown running through their veins
I’ve ever seen.
