the seventh night

i

look up

into the

glow of each flame

dreaming upon dreams ~

wishing upon wishes ~

for a miracle to bring

peace and harmony to our world.

humanity may be in trouble

but miracles have been known to occur…

The Nutcracker Act II Pas De Deux

ξ

The Sugar Plum Fairy and Her Cavalier

one

spotlight

on stage right.

they stand prepared.

he extends his arm –

she gently takes his hand

stepping onto perfect pointes.

gracefully and delicately

a majestic pas de deux unfolds…

dreams of sugar plums become her desire…..

A long time ago.....

my first year as Clara – December 1978

In 1974, the Cincinnati Ballet Company premiered The Nutcracker.  For two years, I sat in the audience – mesmerized.  In Summer of 1976, I changed ballet schools and that December I was cast as a party girl and bunny.  Many little girls and boys see more than just a ballet while sitting in the audience of a production of The Nutcracker – they discover their heart’s true desire.

ζ

On a separate note, this piece of music is my favorite piece of Tchaikovsky music – of any music, really.  Each time I hear it, I cry.  Incidentally, twenty years later my son Peyton would be born to this particular piece.  (I made two ‘labor tapes’ and this was on cassette number 2).  The words written above are based on the original Marius Petipa choreography, with the exception of the last line…of course.

catacombs

my

mind is

tethered to

memories which

keep weighing me down ~

dragging me along

through catacombs

of darkness

filled with

tears

until the day

arrives when

i find

you
