"How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?" ~ Satchel Paige

When I first thought of writing a blog, I had some real insecurities about how to go about it and how it would be received.  Would anyone really be in the least bit interested in anything that I had to say?  I told a friend of mine that I kept expecting that someone would say "Who does she think she's kidding?" I guess that regardless of our ages - when we try something new, and put ourselves out there, there is a degree of anxiety that goes along with it it.  I think that I have pretty much overcome those "first day of school" fears, and have begun to really enjoy the process.  I love carting my camera around with me and snapping photos of things that I enjoy, and that I think readers will enjoy as well.  Usually, a blog topic just comes to mind, but on occasion, I do wonder what to write about next.  This is when I take a gander at what other bloggers are writing about - what inspires them, and does it inspire me as well.

It was in perusing other blogs that I came across the video clip below, from A Butterfly in My Hair. Inspiring is indeed the best word to describe it - and calming, and uplifting. It is about Maia, who is a 95 year old Russian ballet dancer.  You will feel good just watching it - I promise.

  1. Maia is inspiring and lovely. I've often wondered if we have to lose it (strength, clarity, etc.) as we age, and she just answered that for me. You always share the best stories.
