Will You Still Dance With Me to Valentine's Instant Dance 

A relationship centered on a dance shared by lovers  

As two go into the night to share magic with strangers 


Will You Still Dance With Me (repeating verse) 

When veils of sunset are sprinkled with stars
And scent in the air this moment is ours
When wonders of time brings us to this night
I reach out my hand to my destiny
Will you still dance with me
-
Remember the times when passions were tossed
Feelings so new made us helpless and lost
Then youth was our day so endless its sight
Yet longing in heart to question would flee
Will you still dance with me
-
Together we grew such things we would learn
Adventure would greet us at every turn
As each breath of life brought one more delight
And far above all was this fantasy
Will you still dance with me
-
And as we moved on with children were blessed
Oh we made mistakes but we did our best
In the dark and the cold we cuddled tight
Each challenge was met with one golden key
Will you still dance with me
-
Then as we grew old what wonders we met
Life’s river it seemed still flowed through us yet
A world gone asleep was ours to ignite
And they played our music hoping to see
Will you still dance with me
-
Here in this sunset those moment are though
What is to express how much I miss you
I drift through seas our time still incite
And when time comes my question will be
Will you still dance with me

This video, and music, goes perfect with this verse: Carlos Libedinsky "Otra Luna" with dancers Santiago Hernandez & Isabelle Rune

To 

The Cha-Cha originated in Cuba and is considered by some as the easiest partner dance to learn. On the theme of dancing, have you ever danced outside, under the stars? There is nothing quite like it. Stuart Edge, his friend Kathleen and crew take the whole thing one step further. Stuart is a "classy prankster", magician, movie maker, and YouTuber. To celebrate the magic of Valentines, Stuart and company took to the streets of Provo, Utah to dance with complete strangers. Whether Stuart had a good idea, got lucky or just the magic of the night, there is a warmth in this video.

Some Sunny Day to Things Everybody Does But Doesn't Talk About 

Even President Obama dreams of sunny days 

A verse, an insight into one person's sunny day dream 


Some Sunny Day (lyrical poem) 

Problems sore
Tensions roar
Troubles pour
Past the door
-
So unsure
What it’s for
Is there more
Senses tore
-
But then out of some sunny day
Calling me back from far away
Sweeter than any words can say
There is a song to ease my dismay
-
So inane
Molten rain
bringing pain
Through each vein
-
Harsh refrain
Can’t explain
Source of strain
So insane
-
But then from some soft sunny day
The scent of the bright morning’s dew
The promise of everything new
A hope that this heaven will stay
-
A kiss meets a moment more true
A meadow where dreams dance and play
A garden where satin has sway
A realm where those worries few
-
So insane
So unsure
So much more
To maintain
-
But then on a day which was you
There woke a dream filled with you
And all that there is flows from you
My reason to live I love you


Let's drift off to the sunny day of  Tommy Emmanuel "Angelina" 

Plus 

Many don;t know this, but President George Washington loved to play marbles. It was one of his escapes (or sunny days). Speaking of sunny days and presidents, BuzzFeed has gotten President Barack Obama to share with us some of his hidden escapes. In the BuzzFeed produced video President Obama  practices delivering his pitch about signing up for healthcare in a mirror, poses in Joe Biden’s shades, gets out the selfie stick, shoots some invisible hoops and more surprising stuff  (sunshine). According to The Guardian, "If it all seems too involuted, circular or self-referential to you, you may not be in the demographic the White House hopes to target with its latest Obamacare enrollment drive." I missed all of that. 
I just saw a man finding a sunny day. "Things Everybody Does But Doesn't Talk About"

A Knock Unknown to Something a doctor might pull out of a person's body 

Strange questions indeed 

One whose answer is left to imagination while another's whose answer is imaginative indeed 


A Knock Unknown (villanelle) 

On misty night upon a sleepless shore
The hope now lost he struggled to regain
A knock unknown did darken chamber door
-
Would morning’s eyes restore his evermore
Was music which would fill his heart with pain
On misty night upon a sleepless shore
-
As memories formed rivers on the floor
Some shadow added depth to tease his strain
A knock unknown did darken chamber door
-
He shouted out what loss did it search for
What emptiness which it could not maintain
On misty night upon a sleepless shore
-
To endlessness each pulse would offer more
As vast tomorrows seconds would maintain
A knock unknown did darken chamber door
-
The course of knife no meaning could restore
The end of life might make confusion wane
On misty night upon a sleepless shore
A knock unknown did darken chamber door


I came across this music video to go with this villanelle: Dabruck & Klein "2:48 AM" 

And 

Only the female mosquito bites and most are attracted to the color blue more than any other color. Imagine that. And while we are imagining, what would you answer if someone where to ask you, "Name something a doctor might pull out of a person's body"? Especially if asked on Family Feud by host Steve Harvey. What one contestant answered was a real show stopper. Now, once we know her hilarious answer, we'd laugh and that would be that. But Steve Harvey (Broderick Steven Harvey) is a master comedian, television host, radio personality, actor, and author and really knows how to work a situation. It is his imagination that turns a moment into a memory.
Name something a doctor might pull out of a person's body. "Gerbil! | Family Feud"

Springtime’s Tree to Truth About Meeting Women 

A lover reflects on a tree where memories were made 

While another reflects on never meant to be 


Springtime’s Tree (changing verse) 

In springtime there once stood a tree
Where we made a fond memory
Romance sang a sweet melody
Which we two would answer with glee
-
And there every moment would be
All thoughts of all else were set free
We left it for time to explain
Why lovers would romp endlessly
-
With age we remembered our tree
As we met the sun and the rain
And more ties that bind we would gain
Ahead was a light we could see
-
But time plotted end to our spree
With mirrors of pointless distain
Hoping youth in our hearts to drain
And leave it for us to explain
-
A springtime will always remain
Just listen and hear its refrain
Though romance’s melody wane
As stars of forever sustain
Two leaves which came floating from tree


To further the mood, I've selected Yiruma "Spring Time" 

Then there's 

The original title of the famous Broadway musical “Hello Dolly!” was “Dolly: A Damned Exasperating Woman.” Obviously this musical was written by a man. This is not my opinion, but Paul Gale's. To give the "no-sayers" an out, Paul Gale is a comedian, filmmaker, and YouTuber. He was featured on USA Today, as well as NBC’s The TODAY Show, though. Paul gives us his insight as to what goes on in the male mind before he meets a girl. Is he painting us some truth? 
Ask me after we stop laughing. "The Truth About Meeting Women" 
("Hello Dolly" was written by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart.)

The Lonely Dream to London Brawling 

While one man searches some comfort in a dream of endlessness 

Another meets the mishaps of his day in the streets of London  


The Lonely Dream (round) 

I had a dream and nobody was there
No gentle smiles or hopeful eyes to please
No broken hearts or worried minds to ease
A strange new peace was floating in the air
-
And as my soul was captured in some breeze
No heavy cares or hopeful stares to see
No shallow lives or promised lies to free
The flowers bloom without a scent of these
-
Then something shook this shadow that was me
No need to fill or thirst to quell in sight
No hand to hold or world gone dim to light
Was this the grave to claim my memory
-
And as I dreamed came whisper it’s all right
Could this be song a rainbow had to share
Could this be spring the fount of loving pair
And as I dreamed now someone held me tight


To help us through this round: Enya "The Memory Of Trees" 

Meanwhile 

The Queen of England's official residence, Buckingham Palace, was built in 1702. Some say, on the site of a notorious brothel. Some say this rumor was spread at some tea party. I would ask Freddie Wong, of RocketJump, to check on this, as he is vacationing in London. But it seems, from this video, he has his hands full. As most non-Londoners know, London is crawling with spies. It was Freddie's misfortune to bump into some spies, while filming a video about bumping into spies. Now why would Freddie be filming a video while he is on vacation, some may wonder. I don't know. I would ask Freddie... 
But it seems he has his hands full. "London Brawling" 
(Note: No spies were hurt or injured in the making of this video.)

Waves Of The Satin Sea to Fifty Shades of Grey Elevator Scene 

A love packed verse to take our imagination away 

A love packed maiden whose imagination laughs carry away 


Waves Of The Satin Sea (sonnet) 

Softly she calls me to her satin sea
And just for a time leave this world behind
To share adventure there with her we’ll find
She stretch out her hand and sighed follow me
-
And wave after wave awaited me there
An ocean so vast I couldn’t conceive
Whose motions caused tides I’d barely believe
What was our heading I wasn’t aware
-
Then billowing torrents began to stream
We must now press on we cannot turn back
And search for the last bit of strength we lack
Till all of this is silenced by a scream
-
As darkness on the starry eyed descend
This satin sea adventure comes to end


To further toy with our imagination: The Moody Blues "Nights in White Satin" 

Then there's 

It is believed by some that women who read romance novels have sex twice as often as those who don't. True or not this (and "Fifty Shades of Grey") might explain Vanessa Bayer's conduct in this video. For those who don't know, Vanessa Bayer is an actress and comedian best known as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. Miss Bayer tries to reenact the infamous elevator scene from the hot (in more ways than 1) novel, or she is reading too many romance novels. I don't think she will be getting that free Audi, like Anastasia. 
Why? "Vanessa Bayer’s Fifty Shades of Grey Elevator Scene" 
(Christian Grey gives Anastasia an Audi as a gift. So the actual Audi company released various product placements for itself and the upcoming movie release, banking on the popularity.)

A Lesson In Time to Fried Gnocchi 

A mystery plagues a lover as another mystery plagues a chef 

One finds its roots in time's decay the other in laughter 


A Lesson In Time (decaying poem) 

She came to me within a dream last night
So real it’s her now flowing in my sight
Without a word such meaning came to light
A lifetime did each heartbeat reignite

So tenderly she took my hand 
I didn’t want to understand
How time can burst what lovers planned
My mind still blinded by its sand

It was so rough with me
Instead of what might be  
It rained in misery
Was I who still can’t see

For as I cry
My dream stood by
I wondered why
I didn’t try

And this 
A kiss 
Of bliss 
Dismiss

I’m 
Time’s
Crime
….  


To go with this decaying poem I've selected Focus Instrumental "I'm Just Your Problem" by Rebecca Sugar 

To 

Potato chips were invented by a chef in Louisiana in 1865. No, it wasn't Steven Ziegler. But Steve is back to teach us how (not) to fry gnocchi. Steve (believe it or not) is a chef and product specialist at WEBstaurantStore of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. WEBstaurantStore is the leading online restaurant supply and equipment dealer. 4 years ago, Steve made a video for WEBstaurantStore and, for some reason, posted it on YouTube. There it laid forgotten, Forgotten until today. I guess the world had a wild craving for gnocchi. There are a number of questions (besides how to fry gnocchi) attaching themselves to this hilarious video: What resparked it and why does it only have just over 1.2 million views when it got over 600,000 (or possibly more) in less than a day.
Plus, we still don't know how to fry gnocchi. "Fried Gnocchi"
