All She Wants To Do Is Dance

I am making this year about pleasure.

That is my New Year’s resolution.

Yes, it is all about ME!

(Not really, but I just had to say that..)

God knows how much time any of us have left to smell the roses..

So I am directing the vibe of this whole year toward pleasure… all kinds of it.

Olfactory, tactile, auditory, visual, gastronomical, psychic and spiritual.

Don Henley wrote my favorite dance song: “ALL SHE WANTS TO DO IS DANCE.” (don’t mind the visuals..just close your eyes and move)

Today, I am going to find some great dance mix cd online and order it.

In the privacy of my own home, I will rock on…

No one will see or care about the awkward moves

Or the weird looking gyrations.

It will be me n’ God there in my half-sleep.

An early morning communion of sorts.

Starting now……….

    Oh, Cathy, you really hit home with this one! I loved to dance, and that rhythm is still inside me. I just can’t express it with my weak legs, wobbly feet, and wonky balance! I still “sit dance,” though, whenever I hear the musical beat! Keep on dancing — I’m convinced it cures the soul.

    I love it!!!
    I just watched a movie last night about a woman who follows her passion of dancing and how it empowers her. A Tunisian film: I will send you the title once I remember it.
    Love you!
    Shake that booty!
