The Love of Music and Dance


There was a star danced, and under that was I born . . .

I have a great love for the theater. I danced and sang for many years on the stage.

Do I miss it? Sometimes

Do I regret having left the stage? No

The life of a performer is not all glamour and glitz. While I loved singing and dancing, I didn’t like the lifestyle and in the end I made the choice to follow my heart in another direction.

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary and as a surprise my hubby is taking me to see . . .

Can you guess?






YES!! WICKED!!


I couldn’t believe it when he handed me the tickets. I’ve wanted to see this musical for years. Thank you honey for this amazing gift! I’ll share the details on Wednesday.

Congrats Nancy! I know the feeling; it was fun while it lasted, but a lifetime of the lifestyle would have resulted in a life without our marvelous husbands. The beauty however, is that the love of the dance and song never leaves us and it only makes us richer when we can share it and admire it for all it's worth. Have fun, looking forward to reading your ideas about the play and I hope all is well! Anita
