Gratitude & Happiness

Sweet Scottish Steps.

S  is for Strathspey.

In my younger years, I delighted in playing dress up in my leotard and tutu and going to ballet class to twirl about. Unfortunately, I was also a stubborn child and felt conflicted between my Saturday morning cartoons and putting on a performance at dance recital. Cartoons won out. Later, in high – school gym class, they tried teaching us line dancing and ballroom. Some of them were quite complex, and I usually ended up tripping over my own feet. I enjoyed some good laughs, but sadly I can’t say that I remember any of the steps now. In my twenties, it was going clubbing with friends to dance until dawn and begging the D.J. to play our favourite song. I’ve always enjoyed dancing, though I wouldn’t say that I’m any good at it. Perhaps that’s because I’ve grown body conscious over the years and shyness has made me awkward. Now, dancing is something that I do on my own for the feeling of freedom that it brings me.  If I were to learn to dance again, perhaps the Strathspey is one I would consider. Though it looks somewhat complicated with many steps, I like the feeling of traveling to the past to a more courtly and romantic time that the gentler, slower steps suggest.
