The Dance

A line from a favorite, book, movie, and now series, The Time Traveler’s Wife, has her father saying to her fiancée on their first meeting, “You know what they say, ‘Life is a hunt.’” I prefer to think of life as a dance.

I have reluctantly over the years added more than a few country songs to my list of favorites. I especially like today’s song made famous by Garth Brooks and another song that has a lady singers saying, “If you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance.”

Many a shy lad and lass has missed the opportunity of a lifetime by allowing fear of an embarrassing misstep to keep them from venturing onto the dance floor. Love connections are rare and beautiful if scary and extremely painful when they do not work out the way we hope, but they are, I believe with all my heart, worth the risk.

So seize every opportunity at every age to connect even briefly, to stretch your legs and your wings. The commercials say Red Bull gives you wings, but before the music stops take a chance and dance. You will be forever glad you did and you may just make someone else’s day as well.

Your friend and fellow traveler,
