Dancing In the Street
Some ominous-looking clouds were starting to roll in and I was hurrying along the Sparks Street Mall, on my way home after dinner out with some friends. I wanted to get to shelter before it rained, but then I heard music in the distance.
As I approached, I saw a whole group of people dancing in the street to some great Latin American music from speakers nearby. I just had to stop and watch for a while.
I have no idea why they were there but they were having such a good time, twisting and twirling around. Sometimes the music slowed down........
....then it picked up again and the dancers whirled and turned faster. Many of them were very good dancers and I was impressed by their skill.
I was having as much fun watching them as they were having dancing. But shortly after this, the sky got even darker and the thunder started to rumble, so I had to dash off. As I left, I thought about the pleasure that life's little unexpected surprises can bring, such as finding people dancing in the street.
