There’s a few turns in this waltz but it seems to flow well so that won’t be a

problem  -  hopefully.  It’s a new song to me, I’d never heard it before and I liked it as soon as I heard it.  Hope you do too and that you also enjoy the dance.


In life, lots of things are just out of reach and it’s up to your  inner fortitude

what you do about it.  Some people give up real easy while others keep trying

until  their teeth fall out.  Some reach it, some don’t. Which one are YOU?


I think I am a mixture, like most people.  If it’s important I am prepared to lose my teeth, if not, who cares, just let it go.  One thing I won’t give up easily though is dancing. To lose that would be like  losing my heart… and everyone knows you can’t live without that!


See you on the floor sometime…………… Jan
