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

    Do you really buy all the same pair of shoes?

      I used to wear Freeds of London pointe shoes and they all do look the same unless they are dyed a certain color for a costume. Pink is typically the standard color of tights and shoes:)

        Because of this picture, your words and how happy the these memories make you feel. It’s fun to be included in the feeling. 🙂

    I haven’t kept all the shoes, but I did keep ribbons. 🙂 Fun rehearsals and getting anger out while banging them on the floor. 🙂

      They are so cool to look at. They still smell the same – all the sweat, rosin, glue, stitching. I also have autographed shoes from quite a few famous dancers. For me, they are all priceless:)

    I wonder this same Y about myself as well. Bored souls maybe? Creatively under challenged natural athletes? Shows /events/races for need to be loved? Possessing an excellence that is not often companioned? I think so.
