Sorry I've been absent.  My computer crashed and is beyond repair, so I'm waiting to get a new one.  My son loaned me his this evening, so I could check my email, blog, etc.

Life has been crazy.  Between traveling, family stuff, getting one son registered for college last week, and our other son registering for his college this week, I haven't had the energy to think about writing.  For the NaBloPoMo Prompt, I'm using the following poem.  I originally wrote it for a Sunday Scribblings challenge.  I love watching dancers, and dream of dancing, but am content to still be able to walk.  I hope you enjoy this:

In dreams I dance,
spinning effortlessly across the flour,
my soft dress fluently swirling
around me to the rhythm of the music.
Moving gracefully, lightly,
unencumbered by age and circumstance.
In dreams, I still dance.

Hope everything settles down again for you soon! And sorry to hear about the computer kicking the bucket. Have fun picking out a new one!

I like your poem. I can't dance too well in real life, so I dance in my dreams too!

I remember reading this poem, but it bears repeating and enjoying. Thanks for sharing.

I really appreciate that each of you stopped by. I'm still w/o a big computer, but using a laptop I bought from my son. It's hard for me to get used to, but I'll try to do some posting with it. I didn't accomplish anywhere near what I intended for April, but considering all that has happened, I feel content with what I was able to do. Thanks for sticking with me!
