The Ballet Dancer

A ballet dancer is a swan
Without the beak or feathers
A ballet dancer is the seasons
Without a change in weather
A ballet dancer is a portrait
With a difference to this art
The picture captures feeling
The dancer embraces heart
- Mary O. Fumento, 1981

I hope you enjoy the poem above by Mary Fumento as much as I did. For me, this poem encapsulates the very essence of the ballerina. As many of you know I am a trained ballet dancer - educated and trained at the Royal Academy of Dance, London, England. Am performing this weekend so wish me luck. Happy weekend to one and all!;-)

Leif Andsnes Grieg Concerto Part 1

Am planning a visit to Berlin, Germany, and cannot wait to see Leif Andsnes at the Berlin Philharmoniker where he is currently Pianist in Residence. Read more on Leif Andsnes HERE

Enjoy - am off to practice on my piano - like art and poetry - classical music is an expression of sentiment - be it anguish, torment, joy or love. I do believe music is the highest form of art! For thore of you who are unfamiliar with the Norwegian composer, Edward Grieg - read more about him HERE

Paris : En Route To Drinks At Le Fumoir

Life has been very busy lately - but I wanted to post a photograph of my newly purchased footwear for all my sweet blog-friends. I have a similar pair but I was unable to resist the temptation - here's wishing everyone a fun week ahead!;-)
