It’s so up and down these days. But today turned out to be fine, a good day. And tonight I went dancing at Lincoln Center’s outdoor dance festival, I think it’s called Midsummer Night’s Swing. There was a band from Kenya with kind of an African/Salsa beat and it was fun dancing under the stars and I actually enjoyed it. I went with two of my wonderful friends, Karen and Sharon (we all did Mama Gena’s together) and my other dear friend Annie from Vancouver, Washington, the most most fantastic photographer in the Portland area (the entire state) posted “Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps” from Strictly Ballroom on her blog, so I thought it would be fun to post it here.
After we danced, we went across the street to Fiorello’s where we shared great food and wine (I had two glasses!) our waiter and I just got home. (oh, that was a typo.) It feels like Spain, where you eat late and stay out late and there are so many people out on the street, at restaurants, talking and having fun. I loved it. And the amazing thing is that Lincoln Center has been doing this outdoor dance festival in the month of July for at least five years, maybe more, maybe ten. And I have wanted to go every summer and I never did.
Tonight I went, I danced, and i had fun. And I will return.
And now, for Strictly Ballroom:
