Peace, Love and Soul

Forty years ago, my sister Roberta and I would watch Soul Train without killing each other. There weren't many things we both liked, but this was definitely one of them. Brother Don Cornelius brought many mainstream and breaking artists into our house through these Saturday shows.

Watching the videos just now, I realized that I cloned some of these dance moves. Well, not "some". More like a fraction of one or two. I knew I couldn't dance, but there'd be occassions when I could really get it on out there. I actually received a few kudos (and no, not from the drunks up against the walls.) I never knew where it came from.

"Peace, love and soooooooooooooooul." was how Don signed off each week.
