Dear Dancin' Friends,


We're surrounded by a cloud of "smoke"
... but don't let it get you down! Let's listen to an uplifting song that we can dance to when this is all over ... or dance to in your house right now!

Ron's Song of the Week: I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash

www.youtube.com/watch?v=FscIgtDJFXg

I would do a Cha Cha. A few people would say it's not really a Latin tune and therefore not a Cha Cha. So maybe they would sit this one out ... or worse yet ... complain to the DJ! :-O Some people won't "dance" until they hear exactly what they want to hear ... something that fits with their preconceived notions. Unfortunately, they won't learn anything by sitting out. They will only reinforce and be limited by what they already believe. Anything contrary to that must be wrong and is therefore ignored. Those who speak up with opposing information are sometimes chastised ... like Galileo was when he insisted he saw moons orbiting Jupiter ... how ridiculous! Staunchly sticking to an idea regardless of evidence to the contrary is a weakness ... most scientists would know that even Einstein struggled with that. But that's not me. I don't expect everything to fit perfectly with what I think I know so far. After all ... I might be wrong! The ability to fix one's incorrect ideas is a strength. I'm gonna dance anyway ... and to me, with this song, Cha Cha is the best fit!

Hopefully we will ALL be able to "see" clearly soon! ;-)
