the flames of desire

an autobiography

ϒ

many pairs of shoes

each a different story

chapters of a book

penned with hours of sweat and blood

a once upon a time life

dedication

on the cusp of a dream

~ looking forward ~

beyond the threshold

where passion commands

the instrument

and

the spirit

to breathe

as

one

The Nutcracker Act II Pas De Deux

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

ζ

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.

blazing

let our fire

BLAZE

with the strength of angels ~

as the flames break free from the bonds

which ground our desires

and

may the embers soar above the clouds ~

~

beyond the heavens ~ ~

into

infinity

again and…

~

~

come

fill my glass full of dreams

then

light a match,

ignite a fire,

let it burn ~ ~ ~ ~ slowly ~ ~ ~ ~

until

exhaustion

~ not ~

even a flickering ember

&

when the last wisp of smoke dissipates,

we will do it

~

again
