When I was a little girl I watched the Carol Burnett Show religiously.
It was one of the best variety shows wasn't it?
What I loved most about it were the dancers!
Remember, all the shows had them back when.
I confess, I wanted to be one of them.
The Ernie Flatt Dancers!
Really, was that their name?? Yes, I had to look it up =)
They would effortlessly spin together light as air on the dance floor.
I dreamed of twirling around and dancing with my partner on a stage like that!
To be part of a dance troupe on TV.
Oh, what funny dreams I had.
I guess Dancing with the Stars fills that empty gap today.
Not for me, as it is certainly not the same.
been working on finished a couple new classes this week,
this being one.
This cuff was cut and etched out of a gorgeous piece of red brass
I had etched almost 2 years ago.
It sports a forged, stamped & oxidized nickel silver heart,
with a tiny window letting you see into "my heart".
One that longed to dance on a TV stage!
Yes, I dance. But, not like they danced.
I have danced since I was 6, when I began tagging along with my mother & father
to country dances in old German dance halls. You must dance if you are from Texas!
Especially the part of Texas I was born & raised.
Today I still feel a deep stir inside my soul when I hear a beautiful waltz,
AND even a polka.
I probably always will....
Just let me dance.
And when I do, let it be with heart ~ diane =)
