The important thing about dance is
it's joyous!

I have loved this dance since I first saw it in high school.

I wanted to dance like this.
I wanted to wear dresses like this.

Is that too much to ask???

I have searched youtube to find it in the past and couldn't.

But last night I found it; simply under Fred Astaire.

This dance is from the movie Daddy Long Legs.
I'll bet most of you have never hear of it.
(Which is a delightful book too)


This dance is so fun.
You are going to want to dance like this....

I promise.

The dance is called Sluefoot.

My favorite part of this dance starts at :58.

Look at Leslie's shoulders and relaxed arm.

Could this be any be cooler?


Pride and Prejudice

Ah ha!

So Wickham was a cad after all :o)

I love how Darcy is slowly shown to be the man of 'goodness'.

What is that line?

``Poor Wickham; there is such an expression of goodness in his countenance! such an openness and gentleness in his manner.''

``There certainly was some great mismanagement in the education of those two young men. One has got all the goodness, and the other all the appearance of it.''

~from the book, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

Have I told you how much I adore this screenplay?
It follows the book word for word in many, many instances.

The first two hours really begin slowly, I think, but if you can take those in....
the next four hours are pure delight!

Don't forget the exciting and dramatic conclusion next week!


And just for fun....

here is the blue picture, without the blue and the crop and a few Actions.


Is this crooked or is it an optical illusion?

I lined up the pillars with the straightening grid. Twice.

And it still looks crooked.

I wonder if the pillars are slanted a little.

I think the Parthenon has slanted pillars so that it appears straight from a distance.

Could they have done this with the capitol of Wisconsin....
or am I just bad at straightening things.

Still crooked.

Encourage one another,
