The Golden Shoes

The Golden Shoes

I could not believe what I saw as she sauntered through the door.
All the dancers parted wide as she stepped onto the ballroom floor.

My heart skipped a beat as I saw those golden shoes.
The men all shuffled to the rhythm and hoped that she would choose.

I knew there was no way that I would ever get a chance
...to meet this beautiful vision and ask her for a dance.

...but when our eyes met as we passed side by side
...I led her in an outside turn and we flung our arms out wide.

...and now we came together dancing face to face
...as that hot salsa beat began to quicken the pace.

My mind was no longer my own as we flowed smoothly heart to heart.
Don't ever let this music stop. Don't ever let us part.

All the dancers stopped to watch as we kicked it to the beat.
Dancing out of our heads ...the temperature rose ...Wow! ...that hot Latin heat!

Her golden shoes, beauty, class and style - how lucky could I be?
Whatever magic has captured my heart don't ever set it free!

Too soon the music no longer played and I watched her walk away.
I knew my heart would never be the same after this once in a lifetime day.

“We pass by potentially great friends, compatible business, cultural, and political exchange partners, and possible perfect mates everyday and FATE NEVER causes us to meet them, in a safe environment for a long enough time to discover that we like each other. We are programmed by Hollywood films and music and media stars to reject anyone who does not immediately meet our usually misguided standards. Perhaps that is a fact of life and may even be a instinctual human trait, but we know it fails to recognize a more developed and current human state. I personally have tried the pen-pal, friends, social networking, dating, matching, and marriage sites for many years with some temporary success, but they did NOT meet my most important expectations, needs, wants, desires, and goals. Their concept is good, but misdirected. It is hard enough to deal with the random odds, the random chance, the fickle fate, and the chaos in the real world; so why extend it into the virtual world. My future websites take into account these social networking and dating/match-making site short-comings, their trial-and-error approach, their best intentions, their best concepts, and their best practices and adds a structure to give nature an intelligent helping hand.

I have NO doubt that each of us can do some small or BIG things to stop violence; raise better children; stop violence against women; stop drugs and alcohol abuse; ostracize the ignorant conservative politicians and their controllers, who want to take the world backwards in the misused name of traditional values; raise your voice, your pen, your blog, and your web site to stomp out racists and religious bigots -- do NOT be silent (your silence implies consent); stop global threats and human suppression by countries of their own people and their threats to other nations and territories; remove the causes of terrorism; help capture or kill terrorists and dangerous criminals; create global friendships with appreciation for global cultures find ways to communicate effectively with people, who speak other languages; give aid and care for others in disasters; get rid of world poverty, disease, starvation, illiteracy and ignorance, rape, child abuse, pedophilia, and the rampant abuse of our globe and the protective atmosphere. Help immigrants, seeking a better life and trying to support their families, to do so. Make a legal path for illegal immigrants seeking to do the work that you and I reject, etc. Do not accept the globe the way it is. We can make it better. Just do something! Even a small thing. Any action you take, no matter how small, will set off ripple effects that will reverberate around the world. Courage is not the absence of fear, but overcoming your fears.
