Dancing Dark 5

It was very cold. A light breeze riffled the naked trees wrapped in lights. Music was playing by the exhibit building. Alone, in the dark and cold, by the glow of thousands of Christmas, one couple danced.

Not so long ago, that would have been Garry and I. Not that we are such great dancers (we aren’t) but because we were so happy to dance together.

But this night we are not so young. Our backs hurt and the cold is nipping at our feet and fingers. I had a sentimental moment … and then I knew we needed to warm up, inside, away from the starlight and music. But it brought back happy memories and the young couple made me smile.

  7. What a post this is. It brings back memories of “ancient” times. Dancing in improbably situations. The joy of just being. You made me remember and smile today. Thank you.

  8. Love the pics and narrative…Inspires my own desire to dance even though I’m no dancer…my hubby and I are closer to ‘creaky’ than ‘young’ but would probably join the dance in a secret corner of the park…
