we think a lot

this is how it works.
photos and words from a human bean who likes:
twirling, cats, stripes, raspberries, dresses with pockets,
boats, puzzles, babies, summertime, and carbs.
contra
It’s this wonderful twirling of people and space. when I tell someone I’m going contra dancing,
more often than not
They’ll say “what’s contra dancing?”
And i’ll say “it’s like square dancing. with a caller. it’s really fun, i promise”
I don’t think they believe me,
which is okay since the first time I went contra dancing i certainly didn’t have high hopes but I’d promised an old friend i’d see her
And I was hooked, caught up in the swing and the dip of it all
I recommend trying it once
Just once
And if you hate it you can blame me
(but i sincerely doubt you will)

    Danced with CDR last night and it was awesome to ‘come home’ to my contra dancer’s.

    I’ve been contra dancing for just about a year now, mostly with CDR, but a good bit of this summer at PCD. Far too often...
