Ok, so I’m late… it’s supposed to be ‘Music Monday’ but hey, I’ve just realised I haven’t actually posted any music for absolutely ages, and given that today I feel like dancing I thought I’d share this with you to get you up off your chairs too.
I do hope you are all having a good day. The weather here in North Nottinghamshire is very autumnal on this August day – grey skies and on the chilly side, but this can be our sun dance! A real classic today, The Beatles – Here Comes the Sun. Enjoy… 🙂
Remember when we swayed clasped body to body, drunk with love, while people watched and cooed and cheered Lost on our rocking boat the dancefloor filled with friends and excited children without us noticing
I trod on your silk skirts with my clumsy left feet tangled, we tripped and laughed and were both indulgent
The flowers in your hair slipped and fell to the floor and were crushed beneath us and it didn’t matter
Then when the beat of the music changed we drew apart we misaligned and we mistimed the rhythm
I’ve never witnessed anything so colourful, noisy, and joyful as the Trinidad Carnival. The parade of dancers, each troupe in different coloured costumes, went on all day. A senses overload which simply cannot be captured in mere photographs, but I gave it a go. Oh, and of course, these were taken whilst I was having the odd rum or two and ‘wining’ myself. Just to be clear.. wining is a Carribean dance (basically ‘winding’ your hips), I wasn’t drinking wine on top of the rum, let’s face it, I wouldn’t have been able to stand up, let alone dance, if I’d been doing that! 😉
