I was very flattered when Edie asked me to submit my letter to her newsletter. I hope that what I have written here doesn’t offend too many people and that they can see beyond any poorly-worded phrases and not misinterpret me too severely. According to Edie’s reaction to my original letter, it seems there are others out there who will be able to relate to my story. I look forward (I think) to hearing what people have to say about my experiences. Here goes… (more…)
Dear Salsa Freak,
I have just started private Salsa lessons. The challenge I am having is that my wife is now quite an accomplished dancer.

It was fun getting to spend time with you this weekend. Enio and I work and travel so much that I rarely get to spend time talking to another girl.
We have made the decision to not travel quite so much and therefore I look forward to getting to spend more time visiting. We both look forward to working with you more in the future.
