I went to a square dance the other night and it was extremely fun. It reminded me of an ECD () I went to with my 90 year-old grandmother a few years ago at her Senior Center (yes, I was the youngest by half a century). I felt like I was in a Jane Austen novel as I danced and watched others dance in this innocent yet exciting way. But the best part was seeing all the young people dancing together couple to couple - then switching partners, then back together. It made me realize how crucial this kind of event was to courtship and how sorely missed it is now. There is very little chance for young people to get together and meet nowadays that also includes adults. Kids behave so differently around adults and it seems to be a very healthy way of nudging them into adulthood. You now how when you were young and you liked a boy at school but then when you saw him in a setting with your parents or other adults you got a whole different take on him? Kids need more of that. And it was way more fun than TV!
