Whenever I'm home at my parents' house I like to dance in the garden, mainly because they have huge picture windows and I can watch myself. Well, I say dance...adages are my only forte these days. Image<BR>The neighbours haven't commented as yet, although they have a great overlooking view.

ok - I have to tell you this sad/funny story. Every morning a group of us walked several blocks from our cars to ballet class in downtown San Diego. We began to notice a young woman, very raggedly dressed, usually talking to herself, dirty, obviously living on the streets. She seemed to be around most every morning walking the streets.<P>On one corner there was a closed up store with huge windows. Black paper had been taped up on the inside covering the windows. The store had been empty for a long time. The blacked up windows made for a great mirror.<P>One morning as the group of us approached this store, we saw the young woman, standing in front of the mirror/windows. She put down her sack, and stood there for a while. And then, and then, she began to dance!<P>Ballet! En dehors pirouettes, pas de boureés, en dedans pirouettes, a renversé (!), balancés, waltz turns.....and all quite well executed. Very musical. She was humming as she danced. Then suddenly she stopped, picked up her sack and walked off.<P>Who knows what had happened to her? What kind of background she had?.....we were literally stunned into silence. I think everyone had tears in their eyes. And very grateful that we were on our way to ballet class.<P>Red Shoes mentioning big picture windows reminded me of this.<BR>

oh besheva. that is so sad! but what an awesome painting that would be, of a raggity, dirty woman dancing in front of a blackened window, and in the reflection a beautiful ballerina. oh, how i wish i knew how to paint, i'ld do it in a minute. but in regards to the woman, i guess its true, but for the grace of God go I.
