My Thoughts · square dance



Exhausted and ready for bed! Yes, I am! We just finished the 16th Annual Hot August Nights Square Dance Festival in Albuquerque, NM. Because of the pandemic, this was our first since 2019! I don’t know if it’s my age, being idle for a couple years and not chairing this event or what, but I felt overwhelmed by everything this time.

So, next week, I will give you a full report of the event and the stories. Thanks for being understanding and stay tuned!

Exhausted But Still Promoting

Even though I’m exhausted, here’s a plug for my One-Year Anniversary of the Release of Coronavirus Reflections: Bitter or Better? Zoom Party on Wednesday, August 24 at 7:30 PM MST. The pandemic affected us all differently—how did it affect you? If you’re interested, email me at for the Zoom meeting information.


I’m exhausted yet so satisfied with the results of our event.
