    Sounds like a story and makes you feel like you were there, but what is the reader supposed to get out of it. How are we supposed to identify with it? Or is it not written for anyone else except for the author themselves? (Report) Reply

    Important topic, insightful ideas. I especially like the last line and the image and sibilance of susceptibility to the sun's rays. (Report) Reply

    i saw a photo of a ballerina that i knew, but i didn't know she was a ballerina until then. what beauty i saw in that photo and now in my friend. That photo was in black and white, but your descriptions of sun and burning, that photo will never be black and white again. (Report) Reply

    That is very true, my true respect and admiration for your Ballerina, sir! And for each other ballerina they all are working very hard.
    It may be not the light of stage to keep them going, sir, but maybe the love for beauty, the love for movement, the love for being able to connect music in symmetry with own centers, balance, and words with the tip of their toes, for the love of fly, they can even grow wings: I watch the little kids how hard they try to keep up with the boring abc of warming up. But at the end of the lesson when they are given freedom, oh dear, you can see butterflies and birds, winds and rainbows coming out of them, then years later, here we have grown ballerinas on stage to show the magic of children hearts with well worked body teaching us love. You may see your Ballerina as a martyr sir, I understand...she is not alone, in one way or another, maybe we all have to pay a price if we are given a power of gods: the purest form of inner beauty: power of love. Thank you.
