Hope you enjoy this little dance, Ashes To Ashes.  I've always had a fascination with ashes. I know I'm wierd, but it has always seemed incredible to me that something strong and solid can be transformed into flimsy ashes. Where did the solidity go to? Come to think about it, smoke has always fascinated me too. Where does it go to?........  with the wind.I suppose...... but where does the
wind go to...... and what colour is it?  I often see the results of wind but I'll bet that not one of you has ever actually seen the wind.......... or have you? 
Have I missed out on something?    Phew, see how I get carried away. 
All I really wanted to say was please enjoy the dance and....

See you on the floor sometime.......  Jan
