No day shall erase you from the memory of time

This quote from Virgil is displayed in the Memorial Hall of the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York with letters forged from remnant World Trade Center steel by blacksmith Tom Joyce.

the power of teal


 
Celebrating the athleticism and sublime grace, artistry, strength, and courage of Simone Biles who reigned supreme at the US Gymnastics Championships last weekend.
 

The teal leotard she wore was to honour the victims of sexual assault, being a survivor herself.

“The colour is for the survivors. I stand with all of them…”  Simone Biles

A true hero and inspiration for our times.

afternoon at the ballet

 

Yesterday afternoon the ballet came to the studio. Inspired after watching the sublime Tiler Peck, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, in Ballet 422 on Netflix. Watch this great ballet documentary and be inspired by her too.
