TWINKLE, TWINKLE LITTLE TOES.
Black Swan was on television last night. I had not seen it so I thought I would give it a watch. I do love ballet, the costumes, dancing, makeup. Although it was a well acted film I cannot say I particularly liked it. Some scenes were very disturbing and I really don't like films about weak, whiny people, men or women. It did get me to thinking about ballet though.
There is something about ballet. It is timeless. The costumes are so beautiful and delicate. The slippers, although I am sure painful, look so lovely. I think I like the images of a ballet as much as the dancing. It made me wonder would my sweet little baby granddaughter one day take an interest.
Would those chubby little toes put on a pair of pointe ballet shoes and fly through the air with the elegance of a graceful bird.
Maybe she will just love dressing herself and her pets up in tutus and put on her own shows, which would be fine with me. Time will tell.
ALL IMAGES ARE FROM PINTEREST.
