I miei cari amici
"A world of disorderly notions, picked out of his books, crowded into his imagination; and now his head was full of nothing but enchantments, quarrels, battles, challenges, wounds, complaints, amours, torments, and abundance of stuff and impossibilities." (Cervantes, Don Quixote)

My first YouTube video
This is my long-anticipated foxtrot performance with Angie Hines, recorded by our daughter Vanessa, who sat with my wife in the audience. I wasn't perfect, but nothing about this experience discourages me from doing it again sometime. And I got some very good feedback for it as well. All in all, probably not too bad for a 54-year-old man who had scarcely danced a step in his life until less than a year ago.
