toe shoe

Like many little girls, I was fascinated by ballet. I desperately wanted to take lessons - not necessarily so I could dance, but just to wear the beautiful costumes and shoes.
Luckily my high school offered a dance program as an alternative to the standard physical education courses, and I was finally able to indulge my dream of wearing pink satin shoes.

Eventually I came to realize that the physical demands of ballet were unnatural, and harmful to my body. But for a few short years I delighted in living my dreams.
