Shared Experience


I only have brief moments to write today. I haven't had a chance to do my Inspire Me Thursday contribution because last night my husband and I went to the ballet - Yay!! For our wedding anniversary this year we decided we were going to create some shared experiences. We bought tickets for the Balanchine Triple Bill put on by the National Ballet of Canada. It was such a treat. I haven't been to the ballet for years. When I was in high school, my mom used to write me a note so that I could leave school and go to Thursday matinees at the ballet with my friend Suzy. I have so many fond memories of watching up-and-coming dancers perform the great ballets. It was a beautiful way to spend a Thursday afternoon and now a Thursday night!

I think that's an awesome experience Jamie! How I miss the ballet too. There's nothing like it. Sigh... How beautiful. Good for you!

I used to go to the ballet at a small theatre in Sydney with a friend from England - noone else would go with him for fear of being bored so I said I would and we ended up going again and again and again. I also remember watching fame when I was about 13 and dreaming of going to dancing school (with my figure!)

That is wonderful. I love the ballet but I have not been in years as well. So glad you had a beautiful evening.
Happy Anniversary!

Sounds great, Jamie. Jim and I have been trying to do that too, to "do" more things besides just work in the studio. We just got back from our mini romantic getaway... I think I'll likely write about that on my blog, and it was great.
