THANK YOU, DANCING WITH THE STARS

Each morning upon awakening,  I pick up my i phone  The first thing I see. before unlocking the phone, are messages  about all the unpleasant things going on in the world. My stomach is churning with anxiety even before getting out of bed.  It continues all day and up until bedtime. Is it any wonder I have occasional nightmares? But last night’s television program  offered a respite from all the bad news.  Thank you, Dancing With The Stars, for a good night’s  sleep, and sweet dreams.

Dancing With the Stars is America at it's best
MANY CONTESTANTS ON DANCING WITH THE STARS ARE WAY OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE.

What I love about Danicng With The Stars  is its lack of perfection.  Some of the contestants are awkward and out of shape.  Many are way out of their comfort zone.  But they’re gamely trying their best not to make a fool of themselves.  Isn’t that where most of us have been at one time or another in our lives?

Dancing With The Stars has come a long way since it’s first season.  Then, it was mostly about the dancing. The sets and costumes weren’t so spectacular. Later, they went through a time when  the women were half naked in their revealing costumes.  My husband liked that, but I thought it not so good for younger kids who might be watching. Now, they’ve gone all out with gorgeous,  glittering costumes and glamorous sets.  It’s like watching a Broadway show.

Best of all, for two hours, you don’t have to see television shows and news reports  about murder, sex, gender issues, racism, politics.  Better yet, you don’t have to hear about:  impeachment, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Trump, Schiff, Pelosi, Isis, Turkey, or any of the other cringe worthy words or topics that make you grit your teeth and wish it would go away.

This show represents  America at its best. It takes our mind off our worries and gives us two hours of dazzling  entertainment.  Thank you, Dancing With The Stars.
