32-bar dance, designed to be danced 4 times Strathspey followed by 4 times Reel.

Bruce Herbold devised “The Long and the Short of It” for the wedding of David Newitt (6’3”) and Heather MacKay (barely 5’ 1 ¼”). Despite their height mismatch, they are a perfect pair. Patti wrote the name tune in contemplation of how long the road can be to find that person who really feels like “home”.
