… and the thrilling swirl of dancers during Holi …
…to a spirited jig or two during Irish Week.
But the most unexpected dance of all was during a Sunday walk along Seattle’s waterfront. In the distance I heard the warble of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Dance me to the End of Love’ – one of my all-time favourite songs, so I felt compelled to seek out the source. Close to the shoreline, hidden by a rocky outcrop, I spotted a couple with a boombox weaving intricate figures around each other. I sat and watched their secret tango until the song ended and the plaintiff call of gulls filled the air once more.
