Potter's Wheel: A Search for Love and the Truth...

I am restarting this blog for the purpose of discussing relationships more so than promoting my novel, maybe both. I feel that it is important if we as sensitive humans are going to get any happiness out of life. I hope you will join me and add to the discussion wherever possible.

Dancing is Sharing

My son is a ballroom dancer and competitor in dance sports. He is only 10 years old and has been placing in 1st or 2nd place since last year.

I only bring this up because I was just at a showcase in which he and his partner performed. In between segments of the event, there were free dance as they call it where anyone can dance. The place was packed. People of all ages were there dancing their hearts out.

I took lessons a few years ago, before I married his mother. One of the reasons was to have an activity that I could do pretty much as long as I could walk around. I see couples in the eighties moving across the dance floor and being totally involved. Sure, they don’t do it the way they did when they were younger, but they were participating and enjoying themselves. What more could you ask?

Most importantly they were sharing an activity that both liked. This is the key. Ballroom dancing is just one, but it is a great one. And, this is why we plan to start doing it in the very near future.
