So You Think You Can Dance

I had grilled cheese yesterday. Pausing to savor the memory.

So You Think You Can Dance starts up tonight! I have to do my yearly plea to get everyone to watch this show. It is one of the best things on television and certainly the best reality show, but I almost don’t want to call it that because some people have a reaction to the word reality. Besides, if I was going to come up with a word to describe it, I’d choose art.

The routines are works of art. I’m still not thrilled with some of the things that happen while they’re eliminating people, but once they get to Las Vegas this show get breath-taking. You will care. You will care about dancing, you will care about the contestants, the whole thing is such a pleasure. Give it a try.

I’m not sure if I posted this picture already. This was looking down 11th Street a couple of weeks ago. It looks so serene, doesn’t it?
