Don't Forget to Dance (The Kinks)

Christine Kane posted the above video (backstory here) a few days ago to her always-inspiring blog - to quote CK: "Here’s to a world that dances, laughs, and shines for no particular reason." (I second that emotion... :-)

SONG: Don't Forget to Dance by The Kinks

And Never Stop Dancing: Thirty More True Things You Need to Know Now by Gordon Livingston

POEM: Tomorrow by David Budbill

we are
bones and ash,
the roots of weeds
poking through
our skulls.

simple clothes,
empty mind,
full stomach,
alive, aware,
right here,
right now.

Drunk on music,
who needs wine?

Come on,
let's go dancing
while we still
have feet.

QUOTE: "Please send me your last pair of shoes, worn out with dancing as you mentioned in your letter, so that I might have something to press against my heart." ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


  1. Ah Susan, I never hear this song without remembering the *very moment* you played it for me for the first time! *smile* thank you for the reminder..

  2. Hey, M ~

    Thank *you* for the memory! - it's always been a theme song of mine and is even, you may recall, on my "funeral tape"... :-)
