Reflections is a column that I have continued over my lifetime.
It has been included in Newspapers and Magazines at different places and times.
The content is comprised of :
my thoughts in the present and notes from scraps
of paper and notebooks that I have filled over the years;
quotes from others that have stuck a cord with me;
and some quips of humor.
The info without noted credits are mine (please credit to this column if you pass them on).
I will and do try to always credit other author's work quoted here to the best of my ability.

"Politics sure is a great character builder. You have to take a referendum to see what your convictions are for that day."
          Will Rodgers
    I have been reluctant to share my passion with readers mainly because it is my passion and I can become one dimensional about it. That passion is the Argentine Tango.
    When I grew up, dancing was not considered manly. Now after spending 20 years studying and teaching the tango I cannot understand anything more manly. Couples dancing is one of the few areas where gender roles are still well defined. There is a leader and there is a follower. Two leaders or two followers do not make a tango. I would encourage everyone to find a dance and learn it well. You will be blessed.
