Here’s an update of where I am on my 101 in 1001 list. In the first 3 months I stumbled trying to take on too much at once, especially when it comes to long term goals. It seems to be less overwhelming if I concentrate on one thing, make it a habit, and then move on to the next thing. It’s not so much a goal that’s finished and goes away, but a snowball, or a booster that’s pushing the rocket further into space.

Spencer has been looking for a creative way to ask his girlfriend to prom, because “flowers have been over done”. After some brainstorming we decided a little chalk art was in order! We laid out the text and chalked it in thicker to make it bold and bright. Spencer lay down on the ground while I climbed the ladder and shot from above. (This seems to be a theme with us these days!)

Yesterday was kind of a crazy day. We started the morning in Los Angeles afterJen and Jonathan’s wedding. It had rained like mad the night before, and our friends Jim and Derek’s backyard looked like an orange juice commercial, all bright and dripping with rain. We got home to Denver in the afternoon to the huge Lower North Folk fire. It has been smoky and red, like something on Mars. Quite the contrast…

Why I Support Ballet Nouveau Colorado

People often ask me if I am or have been a dancer. I’m tall and slender, but without an ounce of athletic talent. If knowing where your body is in space is a sense, like hearing or sight or touch, then I need the equivalent of body-in-space glasses. But, I’ve always loved the idea of dance. I can remember going to the theater or The Nutcracker as a kid. For days afterward, I’d traipse about the house and fling myself along the hallways of my elementary school (along with most of the other girls in my scout troop who had probably gone to the performance too.)

Recently, I’ve been able to get a more grown-up sense of dance. I’ve been working with Ballet Nouveau Colorado for almost two seasons now on a professional and volunteer basis. I take pictures of their professional company’s dress rehearsals, for their school, and for other events a few times throughout the year as I can. I now know enough about dance to be dangerous, without really knowing what the heck I’m on about, but I do know that I will support this company for as long as they’ll let me. I’d like to explain why I feel the way I do, and encourage you if you have no experience with either modern ballet and dance or with this company to check them out for yourself.
