Tonight is opening night at the Washington Ballet. I serve on the Women's Committe, so I subscribe to tickets each season. And guess what? I found the camera! Yep. There will be pictures tomorrow. Finally. (This year we are back at the Kennedy Center.)
You just can not beat the art scene as far as Washington D.C is concerned and to say that I live for these ballet performances is not an exaggeration. It's nights like tonight that make me proud to live here.
There I said it. I am proud to live in my nation's capital. I am so torn because being an avid dog lover, horsewoman and outdoor person in general, I often times feel very stifled in the city, like I'm choking. Yes, definitely I belong in the country.
But, it's nights like tonight, when the lights dim, the orchestra starts to play, and these beautiful, talented dancers take to the stage and weave their magic that I think maybe, just maybe, living in the city 'ain't' so bad after all.
