The Dance

Truism One:  Life is a Dance

Life is a dance.  Each step we take forward and each step back are orchestrated movements although we often fail to see the orchestration.  The melody–well–I like to think it is a God.  You may not believe in a God, but there is something in this universe that drives it and that scientists have not yet mastered.  So, it might as well be melody.

The lyrics are the science and the art that man has created.  They make more sense than the tune, but they do not drive the body into dance.  They explain, but sometimes they are wrong.  There are too many dis-proven scientific facts and mis-drawn reactions to believe that everything we “know is true” is really true.

But the dance is our own.  Dance.  Never be afraid of your step–it will take you forward or lead you back, but it will teach you.  Listen to your melody, no matter what you call it, for it will guide you.  Listen to the words–they might teach with their truth or with their mis-truth.  But, dance without regard to other people’s toes, or how you look, or whom you’re dancing with.

  1. I think it is very sweet writing this to your grandchildren. I am sure someday they will appreciate it. To be honest I did not understand what you were trying to say until I read your about page. Is this a blog to write your memoirs? I think it is very nice to write such letters to your family.

    Best Regards,


  2. I think these are wonderful. And especially wonderful someday a grandchild or great grandchild will hold this in their hands and know Grandpa..PaPa Pop, or what ever they call you wrote this. I think they are very wonderful messages to not only read but live by. I feel you have touched a place we all have been, thoughts we have thought, and things we have done. Good work…..Love ya Carol
