coming up roses

Where there is love there is life

and....not to fret people - I'm okay, yes, I've been grieving over the week and since the holidays are approaching but it's not like the unshakeable depression I had in January.

I'm yawning my head off because I woke up at 4:00 a.m. this morning after a dream about posing people for a shoot. I wrote down some of the ideas as they might work out. *fingers crossed* In the meantime...I'm still searching for a ballerina for a study I want to do. Even Craig's list does not yield results.


  1. Sending you love and good thoughts, Char.

  2. The ballet company in Nashville is always looking for work like that. If you're ever up yonder, let me know a bit in advance and I can get the list of available ballerina's for you so set something up.

  3. how lovely! have you seen these beautiful photos of dancers:

  4. Sometimes I think we do our best, and most uninhibited thinking while we sleep.

    Notebook on the nightstand?

  5. Lori - thanks!
    GSG - thanks, I think I found somene here, one of photogaphy friends has a cousin that is a professional ballet dancer and she is going to pose for me.
    Jo - wow, I am no where close those shots. How gorgeous. Thanks for sharing those.
    PC - always have a notebook on my bedside table!

  6. Char.... you are just so sweet! Glad I found you! And I LOVE this shot!! I saw your grief post, but feel like I didn't see something I should have - hope all is well....

    Ballerinas.. Have you tried a dance school?? You might find some little ones.. that would be cool! Little ones surrounding an adult prima donna!

    Yes.. astham s----! Been on 60 mg prednisone for 4 days & still struggling.. doing my nebulizer. I let it go too long this time.

    Hugs to you!!

  7. Joy - so glad you're taking care of yourself now! keep getting towards better. As far as grief, it was an anniversary last week and I've been reading a book called "Second Chances" so I felt compelled to write about it. Funny when you are thinking of something you can find so many signs of it - even Jo had asked about someone close to you dying.


i feel as if each comment was between us as we sat and sipped something warm....i love to hear what you're thinking.
