Winners! and Romeo and Juliet Update

Ballet Update:
Some of you had asked about the Ballet last week, Romeo and Juliet. It was so beautiful. The pointes, twirls, and acting were perfectly executed. When Juliet jumped into her nanny's lap and giggled, everyone in the theater laughed! It was spectacular. My eyes are drawn to the feet and legs, the contortions and pointes just fascinates me. Strangely enough, the ballet inspires me to workout. I went back to my hotel and did Barre Method Pilates.

What a wonderful way to wind down a very stressful week and actually feel like a human being again (I was really pretty much sub-human last week. I think it was the whole sitting on the tarmac for 3 1/2 hours after the Atlanta Airport closed due to weather making me a day late for my conference...I did have the opportunity to read my entire book cover to cover, Alice I Have Been. It was excellent. Read it before the movie comes out and you will have an entirely new perspective on Alice in Wonderland.)

So, if you need to be inspired and have a whole new outlook, the Ballet is the answer! I was even {ok, I lie on this one} prepared for the 6- hour flight home the next day, scrunched in the center seat. I may be tiny, I need S-P-A-C-E!!! Lots of space!
