NOW AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME OF MY LIFE

I STILL FEEL THIS IS THE PRIME OF MY LIFE

I HOLD IN MY HEART ALL THE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE

ALL THE ACTIONS AND REACTIONS OF EVERYONE

THEN I DRAW A  BLANK AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO THANK

THE POWERS THAT BE WHO INVESTED IN ME

 

AT THE MOMENT OF MY CREATION

I JOINED A MYRIAD NATION

I'VE PULLED A CORK IN NEW YORK

MET VARIOUS SEXES FROM TEXAS

BOUGHT A BANDANNA IN MONTANA

DODGED A "BADDO" IN COLORADO

SIPPED HENNESSY IN TENNESSEE

TRAVELED BY TRAIN TO MAINE

 

I'VE HAD GREAT ADVENTURES IN TRAVELING ABROAD

I NEVER FOUND FROEIGN THINGS TO BE "ODD"

I LOVED TO DANCE IN FRANCE

MORROCCO WAS "SOCKO"

DID SPAIN WITH NO PAIN

LOVED HEARING FOLK TALES IN ENGLAND, SCOTLAND AND WALES

I EVEN AVOIDED "INSANIA" WHILE IN ROMANIA

 

SO NOW I'M OLDER AND BOLDER WITH MORE LIFE TO LIVE

I'M STEADY AND READY AND I HAVE MORE TO GIVE!

HAPPY NEW YEAR …..TO ALL!

!I look forward to this new year

It feels very NEW,

And in response, I feel new.

 

Here we go again!!

Dear Students …….

 

You plant a tree

When you speak to me.

And what occurs

Are clicks, beeps and whirs

And words like…

What, why and how.

I believe you have planned

That I understand

The meaning, the gist of your speech.

Now that I've heard

And think on each word.

I know it's easier

To learn, than to teach.

 

Camille………………Dance! Now and forever!

NEW YORK CITY TRIP…..September 2013

…….…2 nights and 3 amazing days

 

I try to equip

For every NYC trip

But no one can foretell

What will cause you hell.

…..or what will abe…..

             E Z

 

The Staten Island ferry

May make you merry.

The cuisine may thrill

Or make you ill.

 

As you move through NYC

In September, always remember,,,

There's more to come

So never be glum.

 

Hold this to be true

Flying  home with Jet Blue.

NYC is inviting, always exciting!

NYC is the place you can score with an ACE.

 

You pass the test

NYC you're the best.

I will always pray

That you'll show "the way".

 

"I'm in love with you,"

"Honey"!

You were really worth the time

…and the money!

Mercerart Spring Dance Concert...June 1

 

Many "thanks" to all my dancers

Small, Medium and Tall

 Your very special dances

Were enjoyed by all.

Expressed your pleasure.

There were many moments

That many will treasure.

More to follow on NYC trip, but here's  a note to Jet Blue….written aboard my return flight.

 

Jet Blue plays a continuous view of "Broadway".  It's good too.  Sitting makes me cold!!

"Flying thru the blue", sitting with the crew.

Hope Shalini's fine, she's at the back of the line.

As I fly from port to portus, I feel the onset of rigermortis.

I'm thru, sitting on Jet Blue.  Let's dance!
