“Did you hear the careless whisper in the wind?  The music on the ballroom floor, the rhythm of the night.  As I take this one last dance and you lead me into a heaven-sent trance.  

As I look deep into your sensuous eyes, sensoul hands holding each other tight.  I want this night to last forever, my vivacious cowgirl in leather high heel boots and chaps. 

It’s sad to say goodbye, but the best things in life must all someday come to an end-just not before I ask you to stay the night. 

It’s that final farewell, that one last kiss I can’t resist.  You taught me well, as someone with no rhythm.

A cowgirl with an angel’s face, a cowboy with a devil’s grin.  I’m never gonna dance again the way I’ve danced with you.  I wish this night could last forever, we could have been so good together.  

Maybe it’s better this way, we’d hurt each other with the words we had to say.  Just hold me close to your heart tonight, that beautiful body of yours I can’t let go.  

But sometimes that’s just the way it goes.  Like a careless whisper in the wind.”

Song lyric content credited to the best songwriter in our generation.  RIP-George Michael-continue to dance and sing on the biggest stage and greatest dance floor in the sky.  


As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
