My lovely wife and I did our usual bit of after-sundown Saturday night dancing over in her music teaching studio last weekend, and although I had other things going through my mind at the time that kind of dampened my enthusiasm a bit, it was still fun.

What helped to make it fun was the music we were dancing to.  We were dancing to some of the best of Ray Charles.

With most of the tunes I played that night, I preferred the ones where I could just grab on to my lady, hold her tight with her head either close to my cheek or resting on my chest (there is a somewhat serious height difference between us), and sway to the music, even on a tune that prompts you to move a bit more — like “I Got A Woman.”  I needed the closeness more than anything.  It was comforting.

And then we had to close it out with “What’d I Say.”  That got me moving a bit more.  As for my lady, she was dancin’ up a storm, enjoying herself — just the way I like to see her, with a smile on her face.

She and Ray gave me all that I needed to lift my spirits a bit that night.
