Gliding into Fall
|Boston Ballet's photo of the original Swan Boat performance|
Two days ago I had my first day of school. Forty-eight hours later I am back home in Colden, NY, awaiting a new season with the smell of grass and dirt. Our welcome home as we drove in last night was a sky filled with a million stars, the Milky Way floating across the sky. I wish I could see the Milky Way every night. That's the type of sky I love.
I've been sitting in bed for way too long listening to my family enjoy coffee and breakfast, laughing upstairs. Peaceful moments like these remind me to slow down and let life soak in.
And so, this morning for your wake up and boogie video, I am sending you some Swan Lake. Ballet gives me the same feeling as looking up at a sky full of stars or enjoying the fresh crisp morning of an approaching fall. Last week, the Boston Ballet recreated a 1970s performance and photo shoot of Swan Lake performed on the swan boats at the Boston Public Garden. Sadly, I missed this because I was back to work. However, for you and for me, I have brought a video of the photo shoot and a small clip of Swan Lake to inspire you to glide through your day.
