  1. Dogs Caught in Flight Flying ‘Tween Forest Trees
    Smiles took be back to my Childhood and the Joy of Running
    Barefoot on the Asphalt of My Neighborhood Block.. just the
    exhilaration of Running over and over as fast as i could.. smiles
    i once raced against the fastest Human in High School back in 1975..
    Houston McTear Who had the World Record then in the 100-Yard Dash
    From His Little
    Town of Baker
    Florida Not many
    Miles to the East of Where i live..
    Smiles i slowed to Jogging for a Decade
    And came to back to Dance i no longer
    can Jog or Sprint but one Adapts and Dance on..
    Thanks for the memory sadly i found Out that Houston
    Died of Cancer Just a Few Years ago just googling Him up he had
    problems with Drugs ended up being Homeless but made his way back before the end..:)

    1. Thank you dear Fred, it’s lovely this brings back so many memories from your childhood running days and that your dancing brings you joy where you are now. Your memories of Houston McTear are poignant too and I’m glad he made his way back before returning Home. May his spirit run free πŸ’œ

Thanks for capturing and sharing this beautiful moment in time, Xenia. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’žπŸ€— Hugs, also, to Eivor and Pearl for setting such a good example through sharing their experience. πŸ’žπŸ€—βœ¨πŸ€—πŸ’ž
