Where would writers be without inspiration? And I’m not talking about inspiration for articles, books, blogs and tweets — that’s a different post.
If we are very lucky, on occasion we are inspired by our sources. This is the case with a cover story I recently wrote for Newsday’s Sunday lifestyle pages. It was a feature on a group of hoofers. They call themselves “The Red Hot Mamas” and many of them are in fact, mothers — many even grandmothers. These ladies are aged between 54 and 83, and they’ve been tapping it up as a group for years. Read their story here.
So how did they inspire me? Gotta dance. Every Monday…beginners, of course.
