Some time back, an acquaintance got mad at me and accused me of being “uppity”. Since my first response was to laugh at their use of backwoods vernacular, I suppose I proved their point. Call it what you will but I do enjoy things of beauty in this world. I do love a composition of music whose melodic tones consume us for a few treasured moments. I do love the beauty of a dance that uses the human physiology to translate the music into a visual experience. I love a beautiful ballroom gown that acts as a co-star in a smooth dance. And, since I love to see the ballroom community acting at a level of refined behavior that matches this graceful sport, (…awkward pause…) (…longer, more awkward pause…) I get upset when dancers misbehave. So, this leads me to the topic of my next posting: Don’t Bump the Turntable. Stay tuned as I continue being my uppity self. Don’t worry, I won’t mention any names!
See You on the Floor
