There's just something about dance...
It's like a primal thing in all of us.

Patrick Swayze

I was so sad yesterday evening to learn of Patrick Swayze's death. I loved his movies of course but also ever interview I had watched with his, especially recently, just portrayed a good man. At least now he is at peace and in no pain.

No matter what I will always rock onto the balls of my feet when I hear the first few beats of I've Had the Time of My Life and think of hand thrown pottery when Unchained Melody plays.

...and of course you have to appreciate a man who would poke fun at himself too (or wear drag like in To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar)! This was my father's favorite:

That's my favorite too! So sad... I think I see a Swayze movie marathon in my near future!

My BIL worked on the set of To Wong Fu and got to meet him. Thanks for the memories Patrick!

You are so right; this has struck me as being so sad. I love that clip too! The man could dance!

I just loved Dirty Dancing in middle school. My heart breaks for his wife and family and friends.
