The Dancing Girl

I’ll never forget her dancing, it was the most beautiful thing my eyes had ever seen.
Of course I’ve watched many dancers since then, but none have come close to that one simple moment at an ice rink on the outskirts of London.

Never look back they say, and I get their point, there’s nothing to be gained by dreaming of what might have been.
We should, of course, appreciate the things we have now, and how lucky we are to have them.

But as life’s wind whips up the waves that carry us on our journey, it’s worth pausing once in a while and taking a look at some of those moments that we’ve savoured.
Trying to replicate them will only ever lead to disappointment. But that doesn’t mean we can’t daydream once in a while, about watching her dance once again…
