This is a quote from one of my music heroes, David Bowie, Mr Changes himself & let's face it, a saying we all must have thought at some time of our life.
"I try everyday to pattern my life so I enjoy the moment. Something I find hard to appreciate whether it's is an up Or down moment, be in it & embrace it, be honest with it; the truth is there; the layers have to be slowly peeled away. It takes time & there is no set time".
So this last year I have taken a few risks. A writing group, a dance group 'Zumba', now that was funny. I didn't realise it was an advanced class. I looked like a right pillock seeing all these people (80% very fit) knowing all these fast moving steps. I soon realised I was liking the energy. I was one of three men there & I suddenly felt no embarrassment; I had the thought of finding an over 50's class so I can learn the steps. Two weeks on & I am looking at booking a free session this week. Wish me luck!!!
July 2017 update - Been to two different classes, one Tango & one Zumba. It was great getting out, but I am pretty rubbish. It's great I can get theses lessons free with my gym membership. My fellow pupils who have been there a while keep pushing me on & say that I will get it. ummmm. well it's fun, let's see where it takes me.

At times I do feel like an alien upon this earth.
