Hi Arnold -
I really enjoyed seeing your message on the list. You know, we never had
time at the 1999 Institue to do dance lessons (and you should have seen how
prepared I was!) and I wasn't part of the 2000 sessions, so no dancing this
year either. What this means is that you were privy to a very unique
experience indeed. Just count your lucky stars.
But more important, how's your health? Sounds like you are back teaching
full tilt. Mazel tov! My big news is that I got married at the beginning
of the summer. It's a fun thing to do as a grown-up. And talk about
dancing at weddings...
