Pic and a Word #285: Tango

Tango will be the death of me “When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” ~Wayne Dyer (with thanks to Selma) Dance, dance. It takes two to tango. And if it doesn’t you don’t and you know. I tellContinue reading “Pic and a Word #285: Tango”

Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable

Pic and a Word #282: Cavernous

Today’s poem and photos are from two different countries but they share that hollow cavernous feeling which Patrick knows so well.
