The Chinese Dance



leaping and twirling

cheerfully energetic

flutes tickle the ears

        But of course!!! I try to check out the FP’s everyday. I did today and voila! There you were;). My son was with me – movie guy is home from school. I told him all about you. Jordy was born in Toledo but has a thing for Cincy. He is definitely his mother’s son. A matter if fact he was saying that we need to make a trip – he wants to check put the rare book archives at UC. It seems they would have quite a bit of material from my days with the Ballet Co. and CCM and the Prep Dept. Of course, he wants to hit up Skyline, Graeters, Servatti’s and Izzy’s. 😉

        And if you come, let me know … if available, I can join you at Skyline and/or Graeter’s. .. Born in Toledo? Wow … another connection because I’m a Bowling Green undergrad.

        Geez;). My ex is from Toledo. His older brother went to BGSU. His younger one went to UC. Such a small world.

        You know what I miss at this time of year? Krohn Conservatory. I love seeing the live manger and the lights and the big pointsetta tree. My mom loved it there. I believe it was her favorite place to visit – anywhere.

    Next on the playbill is the Chinese Dance. Always very lively and many times humorous.
