Thanks everyone, and especially Dad, for bringing this up!
I would like to say that Joy is SO right. One of the reasons I stay so close to Dad and the front is because I'm afraid of going unseen, thus being knocked over. I'm proud to say that I have not fallen or been pushed while with Splintered to this date. Another reason I stay up close and personal is due to my height. If even one person stands in front of me I might miss Butchy jammin' or Anders making a cool face (and to me, that is all part of the experience).
Best of all, when I am in the front, surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones, I feel like there is a soft cushion around me; therefore nothing bad can happen. So, to all of you, I say THANK YOU. It means a lot and gives me peace of mind while enjoying SS. Although I may not express this often, it really does mean a whole lot.
And while we're on a thread about dancing, I constantly look around and feed off the vibes that each (unique) dancer sends out. This too makes for an awesome experience!
So thanks friends & family! LOVE YOU!
I'm still walkin', so I'm sure that I can dance.
