Movement is the key the key to life. Anything static fades quickly. When I was much younger I did Interpretative Dancing in Washington Square Park. My partner, Larita, was an extremely talented and beautiful African-American girl. Bongos and flutes accompanied our dancing and sometimes I felt like a feather in the wind.

Remembering those days brings to mind the lyrics of a plaintive old folk song:

“I wish, I wish
But I wish in vain
That I could be
A lad again.
But a lad again
I can never be
Until apples grow
On an Ivy tree.”
