It’s already Sunday and we are heading into a new week.
Did the holiday turn your schedule upside down last week?
Falling mid week the way it did messed with the entire week.
And this year my celebration was bittersweet.
For many years, my family and I have gone to the Marin County Fair to celebrate my birthday.
It’s a great place to celebrate because the Preservation Jazz Hall Band performs, and it’s always guaranteed that swing dancers will show up and have a great time.
With my Swing Dance History, it’s the perfect place to celebrate another year!
Since my divorce I have gone each year with my youngest daughter.
This year, my ex-wife was planning to go with friends and my teen-aged stepdaughter and called asking us to meet them there.
I had my reservations about it – would it be awkward? would my ex want to dance with me? should I accept?
When we met the morning of the fair she asked if it was OK to put her stuff next to my blanket.
“Fine with me,” I thought, “so far so good”.
My youngest daughter was excited to see her sister and mom, and I was happy to see my
When the band began playing I danced with many partners, and then my stepdaughter ran up with a big smile and wanted to dance with me.
When she was little, I taught her how to dance, and we’ve shared many happy memories from previous years at the Marin County Fair. I remember her getting free CDs, T-shirts and she even got her picture taken!
We shared a great dance, smiling and laughing.
After the band finished playing we all went our separate ways around the fair.
The kids took off to ride the rides.
Soon my ex and her friends went toward the fair booths and I went to look around the fair and
catch up with the kids.
A little while later, I got a text message from my ex telling me there was a zydeco band and to hurry over to the stage by the ferris wheel. I was reluctant at first, but I love Zyedco music so it was hard to resist!
When I got there the band was rocking and the dancers were dancing up a storm!
There was so much excitement in the air that I asked my ex to dance without giving it much thought.
I was having a great time when I looked up and saw a huge smile on my ex-wife’s face. All the anger, hurt, and animosity was gone in that moment.
I was free to enjoy the moment, the connection and the Healing Power of dance and music.
Swing Dance History is filled with stories of amazing healing.
This week I’ll share the story of a woman who couldn’t walk unassisted, but was freed from her arthritic pain by this magical Healing Power.
