“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over.
Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.” ― Kurt Vonnegut

Dance with me

Bodies together in flight
grinding of the hips
swaying throughout the night
moisture wets our lips

Caught in the beat
pounding of the heart
light on our feet
performance of fine art

Rhythm taking us over
magic in the air
seduction like no other
we two can share

Your hand in mine
alive with many expectations
moving forever in time
feeling all the sensations

Lost in the moment
holding one another tight
succumbing to the movement
our timing is right

Language with endless expression
making the physical connection
shaking with much passion
leaving behind all inhibition

Two of my biggest passions in life are music and dance.

Dance is the oldest and liveliest of the arts. We express our feelings in rhythm and body movement. Our ancestors left pictures and writings which told of their dances. The dance is the language of the body. It draws people together in their thoughts, feelings and emotions. A dancer can communicate any subject and idea to their audience. A dance can be social, allowing everyone to take part in it. As in poetry and song, the dance can be any style or form. Throughout the ages, the dancing body has inspired the musician, sculptor and painter. Much of our social dancing today is for the pleasure of companionship. The dance reaches its most beautiful form with those who treat it as an art. From primitive to ballet to folk to modern to jazz, dance is an endless language of fine beauty and art.
