MY BELIEVING BONES

Swung by the rhythms of a Yes and No,
Between the living and the dead I go.
The dance is in my bones; and though I see
That every dancing bone will cease to be,
I will believe my bones and learn to trust
My living and my dying… for I must.
Coming and going by the dance, I see
That what I am not is part of me.
Dancing is all that I can ever trust;
The dance is all I am, the rest is dust.
I will believe my bones and live by what
Will go on dancing when my bones are not.
--Sydney Carter
May 5: Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo, is the day to celebrate the anniversary of the 1862 Battle of Puebla. General Ignacio Zaragoza?s troops were outnumbered three to one as they battled the invading French army. They may have been outnumbered but they had the will to win. The Mexican forces defeated Napoleon III?s army and Puebla stood.

Today's a good day to break out your Latin-themed records, and maybe play some mariachi music during the breaks.

I'm sorry, but I've had to disable comments. Spambots have found the site, and I don't have time to try to figure out how to stop them. In the future, I'll probably start using some standard blogging software that I can modify to add the dance quotes. In the meantime, no comments.
