It’s time to take out old Earth, Wind & Fire records because it’s the (sort of) official day of dancing in September. Did you remember, tonight will be the 21st night of September? Clouds are in today’s forecast, but maybe we can change that by chasing the clouds away with our hearts ringing and souls singing.
