ABC Wednesday-V-Valuable


I took my ten-year-old granddaughter and husband to a performance of  "The Nutcracker Suite" for their shared birthday gift.  It's a wonderful way to show a child that we value music and dance.  It was a valuable lesson in the pleasure of fine arts and a wonderful way to demonstrate that I value being with them to celebrate an important day in their lives.

  11. First of all, I like your values even though "The Nutcracker Suite" bores me to tears.

    That sculpture is a very interesting twist on a theme!

  14. What a beautiful sculpture.

    Our dear friend's daughter is a ballerina with a Dance Group in Northern CA. She was just in the Nutcracker.

    We do value those marvelous events and time spent with grandchildren.

  18. As a ballet dancer AND an artist, I am sitting here noticing that she does not have bunions (like I do) and am also wondering how this was cast to capture the foot position and all the details.
