Saturday Sunshine Moment

It’s that time again….time for a Sunshine Moment to brighten our day and lift our spirits.

I watched this take place on Heritage Day at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst a few years ago and thought how lovely it must be to have such a tradition.  It made me hope that after a few years in England, the Nepalese and the Gurkhas don’t follow our traditions and do their courting in a Pub or On-line…..not much dancing goes on there.

Which reminds me of the piece I wrote here some months ago:  ‘Dancing Around Our Zimmer Frames,’ which was posted here on March 7th 2013.

I explored how dancing had been a constant presence in my life and the lives of many others growing up in England in the 1960’s to the present day.

  1. Lovely ‘photos, Jane! And I agree with you; dancing and dances are so important to our lives. Little wonder we see dancing in just about every culture.


    • Exactly my point Margo and this demonstration was lovely….the little ones did a dance later. I have it all on Video but too large to upload here sadly. You would have loved it I am sure.


Please leave a reply and comment - your input is really appreciated. Thanks, Jane
