This is a roundabout where you first go when you are a child in your mother's arms and it's a treat for the whole family. Then when you are about fourteen you take your first sweetheart and its all part of your courting. Then it starts all over again when you are married and take your children and then of course the grandchildren.

The Waltz

The waltz never quite goes out of fashion.it is always just around the corner. It is sneaking, insidious, disarming, lovely.
The waltz, in fact, is magnificently improper,the art of tone turned lubricious. The name of the waltz is taken from the Italian ‘volver’ - to turn, or revolve.
