A lesson in presence

A lesson in presence

Almost 6 months ago I got serious about learning to dance. Not just dance. To learn a partner dance called West Coast Swing. It is a social dance that at first feels like an awkward high school dance. A DJ plays music and someone asks someone else to dance. The music is popular songs you would...
