|With a date like 12-3 1-23, perhaps we should waltz our way into the new year. I hear that “The Blue Danube Waltz” is performed every year at a New Year’s Day celebration in Vienna, Austria. Watch and listen to this VIDEO of Andre Rieu & his Johann Strauss Orchestra live at a palace in Vienna with dancers from the famous Austrian Elmayer Dancing School.
While that is a beautiful eight minutes for the senses and many of us enjoy good classical music often, the dance floors here in the Upper East Side of Texas are more likely filled with boot scooters listening to instruments they call fiddles instead of violins. With a “Waltz Across Texas” tune in mind, let’s hope for some graceful moves across the threshold into a new year of possibilities.
My heartaches and troubles are just up and gone
The moment that you come in view
And with your hand in mine dear I could dance on and on
I could waltz across Texas with you.
My dad used to sing that old Ernest Tubb song and play it on his fiddle. Hearing it stirs good memories. I am thankful for those times and many others with family and friends over the years. As I look back on this past year in particular, I am more grateful than ever for this “happy place” we call the Upper East Side of Texas and the people who make it fun and meaningful.
