About Ray Calabrese


I am a widower.  Initially, I wanted to use my blog as a way to relate to other men and women who grieve. But, sunlight crept into my life and the focus of dancingalong530.com changed. I think more of the present moment and what I want to contribute to life. I am a former Professor at The Ohio State University where I published and did not perish (LOL). As a professor I began each class with a simple statement, “Welcome difference makers.” Now, I turn my writing efforts and creativity toward making a difference and expressing myself in fiction works. Each day I post material I hope will positively benefit readers. I also post my creative fiction stories designed to bring a bit of humor into the world.  My characters tell me their story and I am their vehicle for sharing it on my blog. Here’s hoping you get a few laughs.




“For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”
