The Girl Who Danced

A New Orleans-style jazz band at the fair had the crowd mesmerized.

Especially a six-year-old girl, wearing a red-and-white-polka-dot dress. And matching ribbons in her pony tails. She was dancing and laughing and twirling, in the middle of the crowd.

Along with her ribbons, she wore darkened glasses and had a cane. She was blind.

But she didn’t let that bother her.

Seeing her dance with such joy, made me see the fair with even more vibrancy that evening.

The chocolate-brown eyes of the goat. The rainbow quilt. The glowing wheel.

I’ll always remember the girl at the fair, who danced and laughed and twirled. The girl who taught me so much.
