Lost and Found

She found herself alone at home. She started the laptop, and browsed to her favourite folder.


Her ears caught the beat 1-2-3 Pause 5-6-7 Pause. Her feet began to move, Right left right pause left Right left pause.


Her body moved gracefully in the rhythm. Lost in the music, she found herself when she danced.

    did your feet go – 1-2 cha-cha-cha?
