  1. Very nice … but we’re ballroom people. 😉 …. and ballet look hard. Did you see the ballet dancers on Kennedy Center Honors this year. Impressive – although I’ve never been to a ballet.

    1. OH, common, Frank. Nothing, nothing, nothing is too hard for you!! At least that’s my image….smiling, she said. Once took a ballet class…couldn’t walk for two weeks using muscles I didn’t know existed. Now? I dance in barn boots…ask Dave (1point) he bought them for me…..

      1. LOL … then again, ballet in barn boots would be interesting! … But, although I’ve never attended a ballet (and I like the arts), I am considering going to one … I don’t know when, but one sometime.

  3. Beautiful ballet shoes – ah me! An ambition unfulfilled. A Prima Ballerina not to be.
    Love from your friend, I-sob-a-lot.

    1. Lovie, there were many of us not destined to be ballerinas. We could meet in the summer house over wine (for you) coffee (white, please) for me…and recount all our missed opportunities! However, I fear that session might take a while…

      Coming over in Sept. and will be very close to you. If you would like to try a meet-up…I’ll email you with details. No pressure….

  4. Nietzsche must have thought that if he said enough eventually he would say something lovely! And it accords so beautifully with your watercolor.

    1. My belief is we are all dancers. Illustration (using Monica’s comment below)…as humans we all dance our own “…public and private tango…”
      Thank you, Mr. C. for always stopping by.

  5. Makes me think about God-hood in a new way Raye. What if God does not dance, does not like dance? Does not sing, does not like to sing?

    No, it is not possible.

    When you see the clouds swirl in the sky, watch the grass sway in the wind and smell the flowers as they do their public and private tango – is it possible that God does not dance? (By the way, I love the painting!)

      1. Can you believe this: I actually did a term report for freshman Psych 101 on Nietzsche?
        Instructor was not impressed……since….even my paper made no sense. At all……
