dance with me

Metaphorically —

Literally —

Or virtually —

“Dance with me” is easily my favorite expression of life.

And joyfully, there are so many many ways to dance.

So many people to dance with —

And so many steps yet to be experienced.

The spontaneous dance — without hesitation — tops the list for me.  But practiced moves — with a willing skillful partner — are not to be overlooked in the scheme of things —

And in fact, I’ve found them essential — like a hub in the spokes of spontaneity leading to expanding creativity.

Oh, how many wonderful things in this world start with a dance.

And the first dance —

Is there anything more defining?

In any relationship?

What will I learn?  Feel?  Give?  Receive?

Who else will be influenced?  Drawn in?  Touched?

Will there be another?

“Dance with me” is always an invitation.

A question that must be asked and answered.

And the response is never a forgone conclusion.

The acceptance, a gift —

From the other —

And above.
