Since my dodgy hip diagnosis, one of the things that's hit me the hardest is the realisation that now there'll be no more dancing. Not that I had any secret desire to return to performing or anything like that - I just had it in the back of my mind that when everything got fixed up (which I thought might be sooner rather than later), maybe I could do class again. A bit of fun dancing, like swing, or tap. Or ballroom. Or half tap, half ballroom! I always liked the idea of gliding and bounding across the floor like Ginger Rogers. Sigh… but it really is time now to stop fixating on what could have been. Instead, I need to make a list of all the things I can do instead. And there are so many of those things - I just need to slow down enough to see them.
