pre-show

On the fifteenth of December...

...I was backstage for the second night in a row helping with the dress rehearsal for Charlotte's dance studio's annual rendition of the Nutcracker.

It was late, most of the dancers and cast had departed, the girls were waiting on me as I was replacing some trim on one of the costumes.


What's a person to do?

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
