So this season I started watching "Dancing with the Stars." I haven't watched a full episode since Drew Lachey was on, and definitely have never watched a full season. But with the inheritance of my mother's house came her Comcast cable plan, and DVR. And Nick Carter is on this season, so I decided, why not?
I've been blown away. How have I not watched this show before? The stories these people are telling through dance and the connections to the music are incredible. I've grown to love them all and look forward to watching each week.
The person who I think we can safely say has been the biggest surprise is Bindi Irwin. She came out of left field, seemingly having no connection to music and dance. But she's been proof that these elements can effect and move a person's life in great ways. AND SHE'S AMAZING!!! The stories that she and Derek Hough (gorgeous) have been able to tell in that ballroom have been absolutely incredible. I know Bindi lost her father and I shouldn't be so surprised to relate to her so well, but I really have been shocked. She's been inspiring and sweet and so full of energy and drive, and I hope I can find that as well. If you ever read this Bindi, thank you.
This song is what their latest masterpiece was set to. The power that comes in during the chorus and the absolute compassion and love in the music is perfect. I've listed to it no less than 10 times this morning already. Great choice, beautiful dance, amazing song.
Because songs define our moments.
