DANCIN' DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN

I was going to take a little break from this string of stories and talk about what an excellent time I had Friday Evening at a Party. I danced and danced and let it all hang out.

But Annelisa makes a comment today that really defines a lot of what I am writing about. In my “part one” I mention that Dads unresponsiveness one day belied the amazing powers of response the he would show years later. I wrote these so far with Annelisa in mind, and anyone with a loved one dealing with this... she is in there all right, Anne. Give her plenty of opportunities to surprise you. She’s still got a dance or three left.
We always want to skip to the end of the story, to the end of the book, we humans. I keep wanting to skip to the end of this one, but that would leave too much unwritten, too much unread.

I did a post about dancing a while back...
I had not danced in a long time but I still dance the same...
I apologize to anyone that I may have bumped (slammed) into out there... it was asshole to elbow and everything I had was all movin’ at once...
At least I didn’t fall down...

Ya'll remember Arnold? 80 year old blind man? This was his favorite Led Zeppelin song. He would tap his footand sing right along. He dicovered his taste for it from the Cadillac commercil...asked me what that song was. Old folks sure will surprise you.

It's been a long time since I rock and rolled,
It's been a long time since I did the Stroll.
Ooh, let me get it back,
let me get it back,
Let me get it back,
baby, where I come from.
It's been a long time, been a long time,
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.
Yes it has.

It's been a long time since the book of love,
I can't count the tears of a life with no love.
Carry me back,
carry me back,
Carry me back,
baby, where I come from.
It's been a long time, been a long time,
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.

Seems so long since we walked in the moonlight,
Making vows that just can't work right.
Open your arms,
opens your arms,
Open your arms,
baby, let my love come running in.
It's been a long time, been a long time,
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.

Oh yes it has!

Annelisa said...

Thanks Steve, I'm sure you're right - she surprises me quite often... in little ways that mean a lot...

Just trying to imagine you all hanging out, but it's difficult when you don't know what someone looks like :-)

Go Steve!!!
