Tiny Dancer

I try to get to my Zumba classes at least 10 minutes early so I can peak into the ballet studio located just down the hall. I stand there, giddy, watching the ballerinas gracefully move with the music from the piano. I love their leotards. I love their tights. I love their flats.

I once was a ballerina. I was four. Maybe five. I can’t quite remember but I do remember that I insisted on wearing my underwear with my leotard. So, naturally, my bright pink Barbie underwear remained in plain sight for all to see when prancing around.

My mum used to sit on the side with the other mums and whisper “come here!” Coaxing me over to the side in between leaps&twirls. She would quickly try & adjust my leotard as to hide the fact that my oversized underwear was hanging out.

I decided I had had enough & declared myself finished with ballet. I couldn’t handle the constant shoving-of-the-underwear-back-into-my-leotard. Personally, I didn’t mind the extra fabric sticking out the sides.

Perhaps that was a sign that “grace” is not my strong suit. …

Song of the moment.

Crazy Love

“I cant hear her heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open up every time she smiles
And when I come to her that’s where I belong
Yet I’m running to her like a river’s song

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She’s got a fine sense of humour when I’m feeling low down
And when I come to her when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, in the night like a thief

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

Yes I need her in the daytime

Yes I need her in the night

Yes I want to throw my arms around her

Kiss her hug her kiss her hug her tight

And when I’m returning from so far away
She gives me some sweet lovin’ brighten up my day
Yes it makes me righteous
Yes it makes me feel whole
Yes it makes me mellow down in my soul”

-Van Morrison

Don’t you say it’s too early
Baby I don’t want to waste the day
When we’ve everything on our side
And nothing in our way

We can do what we want to
‘Cos today the world is ours
Nothing gray, just real time and colour
In which to whittle away hours

We could speak ’til nothings left unspoken
We could drive ’til we run out of road
We could drink ’til we’ve emptied the ocean
But I’d be happy here
Happy just to hold you

‘Til the sun and planets disappear
I could stay in your arms all year
Even if that means infinity through
If being productive is being with you
Then baby I don’t want to waste another day

I’ll shout aloud what I’m feeling
Let my tongue be still no more
Now that I know that it’s the real thing
Just try and keep me quiet about it

‘Cos we could stare until we both are blinded
We could fall ’til gravity gets tired
We could lose our love just to re-find it
But I’m just happy here
Happy staying beside you
