Music Of That Night to How to be a DJ 
There was something more in the music the lovers heard that night 
Make music more in your life by learning how to be a DJ or how to laugh 


Music Of That Night (Martin verse) 

Returning to the music of that night
When everything imagined seemed so right
The hopes and dreams of lovers holding tight
Where etched in schemes which stardust held in sight
-
The band played on their timeless melody
As every heart could feel what love could be
A moment set for all of destiny
A wave of Joy across the moonlit sea
-
Such magic ruled each single breath that night
When holding close was all that there could be
For worlds can wait to meet their destiny
For here there are more precious realms in sight
-
But time and age had their own melody
Which rained down on a couple once so right
Loose shadows promised troubles holding tight
Which darkened sands along true lovers’ sea
-
To meet the wind which tries and toys with sight
One memory replays to hold them tight
When everything imagined is not right
Returning to the music of that night 


Here is another Martin verse. Martin verse uses five stanzas of four lines each. Once eight words are selected, in the first two stanzas, they cannot be changed. The third and fourth stanzas mix the words of the first two stanzas. The fifth stanza uses the words of the first stanza, in reverse order. 
It's easy. Try it. Then let me know and I will direct people to its location. 

I'm sure I mentioned this before, when Arlene and I went to our first dance, she realized I couldn't dance. Dancing was very important to Arlene, so she spent years teaching me to dance (partner dancing). I had no idea how much dancing with my Arlene would bless my life. No, we were never championship dancers. But when things got tough, we danced. When age was taking us, we danced. In our 40's, Arlene and I danced the clock back to our 20's (at least in our minds). 
For Arlene and I it was dancing, that held that something. I learned that other couples had gardening, fishing, going out, traveling and a wonderland of other things for that something. Simple walks also worked for some. The most fascinating magic a couple shared, was a couple who crocheted to return to their something. 
What is that "something"? We could call it love. It is what makes a 40 year old couple 20 again. It is a safe realm, away from all problems. It is that space where only one dream matters. We know it when we touch it. Cling to it. Build it. Refresh it. Cherish it. That "something" special to us. So when everything is falling apart, we may enjoy.
