Auntie enamored by a favorite nephew as he shows fancy dance steps. He is equally enamored by his own moves and ability to dance.
Fun time was had by all watching and enjoying a relative’s retirement party.
Cousins Mike and Janie had the opportunity to dance and enjoy each others’ company at a family event. One lives up north and the other in the south. Many times family only has the chance to get together at funerals or sad occasions. This was at Janie’s brother’s retirement party and a good time was had by all.
I hope your family is dancing!
I visited Malcolm X Park also known as Meridian Hill Park in Washington, DC for the first time in years on Sunday August 30, 2015.. I was looking for a place to take picture. Now I know what the world needs. It needs more drums.
Washington, DC is suffering from crime wave with the murder rate way out of hand but there is something wonderful going on within its limits.
On weather friendly Sunday afternoons as I discovered there is a Drum Circle representing people from all over the world that has been gathering for about 50 years in the park. It is open to anyone who has something to strike on and willing to get on the beat.
There were fat drummers, skinny drummers, old drummers, young drummers, men and women, rich and poor representing the colors of the rainbow. The music made you move. It was also playing background to yoga, picnics, sports and other activities taking place in the park.
People were dancing with not a care in the world. For about 4 hours it was nothing but peace and love.
Maybe the world would be a better place if there were more drums.

A large and diverse group of fans gathered to show love and respect for the Godfather of GoGo, Chuck Brown. Services took place on May 31, 2012 at the Washington Convention Center. It was a remarkable occasion.
