philosophizing behind the wheel

i am

nothing

unless

there is

something

inside

driving me

to move

forward

.

.

.

my point

is

driving a car is a hell of a lot easier than driving one’s life

.

the swim

from here to there

standing with one’s fears

courage pulsing through veins

a mission to fulfill

long before the curtain rises,

we hunger for the moment

when

our body and soul

become

one

Can you see them?

*

I look up in the sky and I can see them…

*

they flit about & float around,

soar through the clouds

or

quietly hover overhead.

*

some are bright & flamboyant

and

some could use a little polish

or

a splash of color.

*

there are the really, really big ones –

the very teeny, tiny ones

and

there are many middle-of-the-road ones.

*
there are lots of practical ones,

totally rockin’ cool ones

and

the way, way beyond unusual ones.

*

some are new to this world

and

some have been in existence for centuries.

*

no one knows where they come from

and

no one knows where they are going.

*

What is known is this –

*

they are what they are

and

they do what they do

and

it the responsibility of the thinkers and dreamers

to

keep them alive…

*

I can see them – CAN YOU?

*

the duelists

while standing on the front lines

looking over the fields ahead,

i see battle after battle

and

rivers flowing with the color of red.

some battles are nothing special –

just ordinary from beginning to end

while some are of epic proportions

and

without any knowledge of what lies ahead.

if i take a much closer look,

i see each battle as a duel between two souls…

two souls belonging to the same adversary…

two diametrical halves creating a whole.

this being is a worthy opponent,

an opponent i know all too well –

she can anticipate my every movement

and

easily lead me through the gates of hell.

the two halves of her make the whole of me

and

it is she

i resist everyday –

so many battles devoid of triumph…

doing my best to avoid the brunt of each fray. 

i am by no means a tactician

but

i have learned a thing or two…

through years of dueling against my opponent

and

walking daily in ‘her’ shoes

•••

if i can manage to grab hold of the high ground

&

maintain a level head in which to fight,

i can stand high above my weaknesses

&

allow my courage

and

determination to take flight.

 ∫

very poopie

not another duel with the camera…

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

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.

way down the lane…

staring down the lane…

standing poised behind the line…

deep concentration…

a mighty orb in his hand…

perchance a strike awaits him?

bowling

first match of the season…
