“Falling in love is like striking a match ~

It can be arresting

and

enlightening

or

it can burn like hell.”

daydreaming…

¤

in the daylight hours

setting sail on a journey

outside of oneself

many kingdoms of desire

silence leading to climax

dedication

~

on the cusp of a dream

~ looking forward ~

beyond the threshold

where passion commands

the instrument

and

the spirit

to breathe

as

one

excavating

digging through old boxes

discovering priceless treasures aplenty

resurrecting a distant past

I am alive again

a coda of lights!

~

this

is

the last dance

of

the last act

before

the final curtain call

of

the season.

it has been quite a run of glowing performances

but

it is now time

to bid adieu,

pack up the costumes and the sets

until

we return

again next year.

~

Please,

do not be sad

~ ~ ~

miracles await us!

the seventh night

look up

into the

glow of each flame

dreaming upon dreams ~

wishing upon wishes ~

for a miracle to bring

peace and harmony to our world.

humanity may be in trouble

but miracles have been known to occur…

almost a complete set…

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!
