I'm working on a couple of other posts that seem to be taking longer to get right. So until I do, I thought I'd share a bit of random sights from my neck of the woods.
This fabulous peace fence greeted me after my watercolor class this weekend (that's one of the posts I'm working on).
Isn't it wonderful? Makes me happy to look at it!
It was a good weekend indeed -- choreographer/dancer Billy Bell ("So You Think You Can Dance") was in residence at MSU's theatre department and spent time choreographic a piece with the university's dance group.
In addition to the department's performance of Billy's piece, Happendance, an area dance collective, also performed several pieces.
It was really exciting to see these talented young women (and a couple of men) perform.
And even more interesting to hear Billy talk about his vision in choreographing the piece, the music he selected and working with the students and community.
I admire dancers so much. Their grace, talent and flexibility are all qualities of which I have little. Bad feet? Yes. I've got those! This much we have in common!
The event was held at the dance studio which is located in this converted barn.
It houses a number of tenants, including a church fellowship and the studios for music lessons.
And it was a perfect day. Brilliant blue sky.
Even the shadows were interesting!
Hunting season opens soon and I dread what might happen to the deer at the ditch (that I have yet to see this summer) or others.
These two were in the yard across the street from a friend of mine -- a fairly busy residential neighborhood.
They seemed right at home -- and very wary.
I leave you with another look at the peace fence.
Let there be peace on earth. And let it begin with me.
