Sadly, I think that's true what you've said.

This shouldn't deter us from dancing to Tina, though!

Because this transcend all that. Transcends all the "reality" of the nature of most relationships.

After "What's Love Got to Do With it?" How would you feel about "River Deep, Mountain High?"

One thing about music on even phonograph records: it's there for Posterity!

Even failed relationships....cannot deny the existence of the Inspiration of Music.

Just like the Sea cannot be taken away from us because of human frailties.

Your words are eloquent, and so very true. I did not mean to get too deep, there, but it is my observation. Yes, play that one next. Music is grand because it can speak to the soul in different ways, even the same song is different depending upon the emotion you are feeling or the state you are in. Music can lift the sad mood, or allow me to revel in the sad. It can give me energy when I am tired, or inspire deep desire with the proper company and setting. So many possibilities.

That's part of the dialogue of intelligent people.....deep stuff.

It's wise what you said.

Too many people see the failures as being a deterrent.....it throws their whole world view off--then it becomes axiomatic that cynicism is what is "true."

You dance Divinely, by the way :heart:

Why thank you, my dear! I dance because of you, your patience, your skill as a dance instructor, your easy going, graceful manner. With you, I love to dance, even though I did not know how previously. You make trying new things enjoyable. :heart:

Dancing brings sustenance, and brings Catharsis.

It also relieves stress, and helps clear the mind. It gets the blood flowing...particularly if one's partner does, as well. :wink:

The temperature is perfect here. 72 Degrees!

Yet I sense that it's time for a refill! Of something very, very rejuvenating.

Like maybe some Fruit Punch?

I am in the mood for a light sangria, please. It will be a fruit punch, but with a splash of wine, too, very light. (walks up to the bar) I notice they have these little paper menus...(folds paper...pulls out marker, scribbles intently) Look! I made you a little paper frog. (pushes down on paper hinge, jumps frog down the bar to Kraftie) It has a little face, too, and cute little glasses, like someone I admire.

It's so cute....I shall cherish it!

This sort of thing....I have no facility for.

I bet you are also good at creating things for parties and such.

There's a song which can be used for comic relief, in case the atmosphere here gets too somber.

It's called "My Ding-A-Ling," by none other than Chuck Berry.

Ha! I do not get invited to parties, are you kidding? I have a few little parlor tricks. It was part of an initiative many years ago. I thought if I learned some ice-breakers, I could make some friends, or get a date, or learn to strike up conversations. 'Turns out more than just a few little "skills" is required and I have not been successful. I do not even try anymore. But my memory is like a stone monument, so whatever I have picked up I can still do. It is fun to play with, hopping back and forth across a table, over obstacles and such, until the paper fatigues and the hinge wears out.

Oh, yes. I know it. Cringe-worthy to me, as I get embarrassed for others.

I know it is a bit early, but if you would care to walk with me, I will need to head back soon. I will have to sleep tonight, and take a shower, and such. But I enjoy our walks a great deal.

I bet you can even make the frog talk! :D

Speaking of which....."Joy to the World" by Three Dog Night is on the Jukebox right now.

It's first-line Lyrics: "Jeremiah was a Bullfrog. Was a good friend of mine."

I used to think the song was called "Jeremiah was a Bullfrog."

I shall enjoy walking with you in the Outdoors! And we should pass the Italian Ices stand.

Oh! That's a GREAT song. You know what other frog song I like? "Rag Time Gal" as sung by Michigan J. Frog. Oh, yes, Italian ice..very good. You know, I had never had this before. It risks being an addiction. (As do you) :heart:
