FRED ASTAIRE & GINGER ROGERS (Dancing Cheek To Cheek)

    Everybody loves to watch Fred and Ginger! The enjoyment of watching this dancing duo has transcended generations!

    What is the real allure there? What is so wonderous about their act that we are compelled to watch it again and again?  

    Their dance resonates with the very thing that we all seek to have with another partner. It's called "harmony". The ability for our heart to move and act similarly with the heart of another. To be able to react to the music of life simultaneously. This is so endearing to us. We all love watching it, as we subconsciously know, how difficult it is to obtain/maintain. We always want our partner in unision!

    There is, one step above being in perfect harmony with your partner, and that is being in perfect harmony with yourself. To be able to dance with your soul....as Fred danced with Ginger!  Its not an easy dance to learn,the tendancy to lose balance and stumble is quite common, but there should be no shame in that...unless you refrain from getting back up on that dance floor!

   The night is young....time to dance! Grab your Soul for one more spin!

I'm heaven, I"m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When were out together dancing, out together dancing
Out together dancing cheek to cheek

Lovely, and so true.  Not an easy step, but surely a gratifying one, when you figure it out.   Tina

As per your ususal, you've stirred my thoughts with this topic. I think you're correct about learning to dance with your own soul. At first thought it would appear to be a very easy thing to do...and then we attempt it. It's much easier to take when a partner steps on our toes than when we step on our own. Dance on my friend, dance on.
