The days of tutus and pirouettes are long gone, little girls don't stand on pointe and think Margot Fontaine is cool, they're into baggy pants, loose long sleeves and their pumps are Nike,  they stomp and jump, jiggle and gyrate and they shake their tiny shoulders to the beat of Reggae as  they listen to DJ Kool Herc.

“Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.”  Rumi

My photography has become all consuming!  When I’m awake I think about that days' challenge, after I’ve taken my photographs I’m excited to see what I’ve got and then it’s to the Digital Darkroom I go.  Posting and writing a short blog to compliment the story is probably the easy part.  At night I hardly sleep or sleep so lightly as my brain in ticking over all the time, planning the next day and then of course I mull, I do that a lot.  I mull and chew and regurgitate all this information until the sun comes up.   And so the vicious cycle goes.

Although I love what I’m doing and I’ve already learnt a lot I do realise I have other things on my plate too.   I need to get the broom and feather duster out; the vacuum cleaner is jumping around in the cupboard.  Fortunately I’m not too worried about lunch we have that sorted and evenings are still celebrated in this home.

Fortunately today was an easy one as far as subjects go.  Two gorgeous little girls Hip-Hopping along, no ballet,  piano lessons,  deportment and speech therapy for them.
