Inspiration Friday: We are the dancers, we create the dreams.

Amber Hunt ballet photography;; me, by whichever ballet photographer took my picture when I was 5. 

My very first inspiration friday, a concept that will hopefully force me to post more often as I have been very neglectful ONCE AGAIN.
I've always had a fascination with ballet. I think it is such a beautiful art form. I started ballet classes when I was about four and was inevitably always the clumsiest little aspiring ballerina in the class, the one with the perpetually messy hair, as is evident in the last photo. I stuck at it for a few years, but gave up when I finally realised it wasn't exactly my calling. Recently I've gotten back into it, starting a class which isn't exam oriented that I can just have fun with, and perhaps this post is a withdrawal symptom considering that I can't take part right now because of my neck.
Maybe the lure of ballet is a product of my secret longing to be graceful and floaty and actually have some balance or co-ordination, or maybe I'm just still that messy little girl.

P.s. Don't expect me to say how relevant this ballet focus is, coinciding with the release of Black Swan, like every other magazine and blog on the entire planet. Because I won't.

P.p.s. I loved that movie though.
