Yes, We Are Still Dancing

By Susan AmstaterConnie DillmanJacquelyn Spier



Yes, We Are Still Dancing is a collaboration by three women (a poet and two painters) who have distilled their friendships and their six decades of Southwest living to create this book. Each is a wife, mother, grandmother, and artist. In its description of the ideal woman, the Book of Proverbs might be speaking of them in these words: "Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future. She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.""

The wisdom of these women springs from a long sojourn in the harsh beauty of the desert; here they have found both crucible and chalice. Sun on sand, wind-tossed mesquite, sharp mountain peaks pierced by endless sky, sudden fierce thunderstorms cutting new terrain. All create a backdrop for the imagination to take flight. This flight, through painting and poetry, shares the richness of their lives and gives a voice to all generational women.
