Dance till the stars come down from the rafters Dance, Dance, Dance till you drop. ~W.H. Auden She loves dancing. I actually took this a little while ago and it is been lingering on my computer. She is more grown up now but the dancing bug has not gone away, In fact I would go so far as to say it has intensified.

"There are two things that are more difficult than making an after-dinner speech: climbing a wall which is leaning toward you and kissing a girl who is leaning away from you." ~ Winston Churchill Ps.. Click on the icons below to see who is joining in with these Sunday meme's
So here we go again. Another year and another 365 project. This year I want to focus on portraits; portraits of the random people I meet along the way.
