Dancing Forth!


Good Day to All!

I do feel that there is a spring awakening afoot in my writer's soul. Do you feel it too? It is similar to the feeling that I get in the new year, the one that makes us write resolutions.

It is high time for me to get out there. I get so wrapped up in the day to day mundane of working, cooking, laundry, cleaning--yuck! None of that inspires me!

Last week, I went to Coffee with the Poets, in Hayesville, North Carolina. They had several wonderful poets who read. The featured writer was a witty young 87 years old, a Mrs. Dorothy Spiegel.

This is for the poets:

I could feel them in the room, today

Spirits free and laughing

Unfettered by their particular ages

All of them appeared to me

As young women (and a couple of young men)

And they danced, they danced


Let us all have the courage to take a chance and dance!

Just take that first step!


Enjoy the day!
