This is the most difficult letter I’ve ever written as editor of the Denver VOICE because it is my last. The VOICE has been a part of my life for almost a decade. Now, after many years as a writer and volunteer, and three fantastic years as editor, it’s time for me to move on to a new chapter.
The song “Macarena” starts and Luis Dominguez hops out of his chair, delighted that the song he requested and has been patiently waiting for has finally begun. He begins dancing, first sticking out one hand, then the other in the familiar line dance. His eyes light up as others begin dancing with him. For Dominguez, this rare opportunity to dance is therapeutic.
