Wonderful Waltz



Heard the Khachaturian Masquerade Waltz (previous post) on Radio 2 whilst washing the dishes earlier on - it's so uplifting, graceful, exciting and passionate - makes me want to dance, dance, dance and it doesn't matter that I can't waltz, does it?


Also a quote to ponder and yes, that really is his name!

Jack Russell quote

“Good things to do in life...Forgive, Love others, Praise, Be thankful, Give, Take opportunities, Show your feelings, Smile, Hug, Move more eat less, Pray, Write letters, Have you time, Travel, Touch nature, Help others in need.”

(Will try, but may not always succeed!)

  5. I struggle with the eat less too, because moving more means we can eat more surely? Cake, chocolate and biscuits - can't live without them (in moderation of course) he he x
