I have to be honest. Even with quite a few years of education behind me, I still don’t really understand these concepts. One thing I do know is that they have something to do with the middle. I’ve been listening to Tom’s dance mix coming up for this week’s Legacy and I thought of this concept. As I listen to Jim Croce’s Time in a Bottle, I transcend to teenage years when I listened to his music. I remember where I was sitting, in which room, when I heard that he had died in a private plane crash. Now, here I am, in the mature years of my life, bringing these two extremes of my life together with a beautiful waltz to the sound of Croce’s voice. There’s something very mathematical about all this.
Some weeks ago, Tom and I Night-Clubbed to a Glenn Campbell song that had been a favorite of Tom’s when he was younger. I watched Tom as we danced to the poetry of Jimmy Webb’s The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress and I saw joy that this song had come back into his life. Our past, our present, now meeting in the middle.
February is the month of love and you are going to LOVE the dance mix for this month’s Legacy. You’ll love dancing as Joe Cocker’s voice cracks at the end of You Are So Beautiful – remember that? Also, there is one song that is going to make all the DanceQuest folks tear up, but that is a part of this mean, median, mode thing. We have to allow the music and dance to bring all those extremes together.
Don’t miss this Legacy.
See You on the Floor…THIS SATURDAY!
