Day 70/365 Dancing King

I need a little cheering up this evening. I’ve been sitting here staring at my screen. I like to write from the day’s events and inspirations, but I’m still processing my day. I’m not ready to talk about it yet. So here’s what I’m going to share instead…

img_2945My dad loved to dance. Loved it. He was not a skilled dancer, per se, but he gave it his all, and dancing with him was so much fun. He especially loved Motown music – The Temptations, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, etc.

Seeing dad (or better yet, being with dad) on the dance floor was a lesson in letting go, and not giving a shit what other people think. He would sing along at top volume as he laid out his moves. All that mattered was laughing and letting the music move through him. Just thinking of him on the dance floor makes me smile.

So, I have a whole bunch of dancing photos and I am sharing them here today.  Maybe they will make you smile, too.

    Being with your dad was always a pleasure. He was gracious, warm and so sincere. My favorite memory and the one that I will always keep of him is of the two of you dancing at your wedding. He was a great dancer because he danced with all his heart and he smiled and he radiated pure joy. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos.
