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

opening nights, first tour, debuts, special events – just a few

dedication

~

on the cusp of a dream

~ looking forward ~

beyond the threshold

where passion commands

the instrument

and

the spirit

to breathe

as

one

digging through old boxes

discovering priceless treasures aplenty

resurrecting a distant past

I am alive again

The Nutcracker Act II – The Finale

The Finale

soaring crescendos

all the dancers on the stage

Clara bids farewell

me – Act I – center stage – before the tree starts to grow

The photo above was taken from a special souvenir photo book which was created for the 1981 Nutcracker Season.  After spending my Sunday afternoon digging through boxes, I found this gem amongst many, many other treasures.  This photo was taken in 1979.

I hope you have enjoyed my series of pieces inspired by The Nutcracker Ballet.  As a child, the holidays were The Nutcracker. As an adult, they are very special memories – ones which I will never, ever forget.  Just ask my boys….they hear the same stories year after year, after year, after year…..and it looks like y’all will be suffering the same fate!
