    And the scene where the father is dancing alone to his
    (dead) daughters music...that bothered me.

    One of my regrets in life is to have never danced with my
    mother in law. She asked me once and I declined. There
    was a time when the Spook was a very shy person. And
    I turned her down.

    I never danced with my mother in law. Isn't that a silly thing
    to remember? But that has been with me for years. She's gone
    these past 15 years.

    I'll never get that dance.

    I've told you people that I dance with my wife. My daughter
    (when she will) I've danced in my living room, I've danced on
    the stage, I've danced in the street.

    And with every dance, I think of that one dance I missed.

    So I dance with my wife every chance I get.

    Missed opportunities can break your heart. Or make your heart.

    Thanks, Spook. You just made me take a long, hard look at my attitude towards dancing. It needed looked at.
