We had Nick’s, we shared old bay popcorn, we watched indiefilms, we made cornmeal blueberry pancakes. We shared space, we adopted cacti, we antiqued. We put a new spin on an old school game, we napped, we laughed. We spokeeasy twice, we donned a red fez. We crafted in the sanctuary, we admired the Pearl, made a new bridge friend, we visited an old one. We ate pears and pico and peanut butter. We hoofed it downtown, we got lost in the watery fires, we hunted wine, we met friendly faces. We invaded Brown, we limboed lower, we sipped Del’s, we climbed a roof. We sat in ghostly study halls discussing the miracle of childbirth. We rubbed tired eyes. We held hands. We walked home.
Happy Saturday! Technically this is FBP’s “Friday” and I could not be more thrilled it has finally arrived. Here’s a beautiful little illustration, set to one of my favorite songs by The Weepies, to start your day off right. It’s a very snowy morning in Providence, and I’d love nothing more than to snuggle on the couch with my best friend, a cup of tea and banana oat cookies watching this video on repeat, but the studio awaits…have a wonderful weekend!
PS, if you’re in the RI/MA area and want to check out Time vs. Money on a big screen, you’re in luck. It’s been nominated for an award and is enjoying its big screen debut this Sunday:
Time vs. Money – Shaun Clarke | Music by The Bynars
Time and money rule our lives, but what is actually holding things together? Time and money don’t hold things together… those are concepts created by man. What is actually holding things together is love. The video features dancers, Kirsten Evans & Alex Lantz, with choreography by Viktor Plotnikov.
Just thought I’d share a little peek at my Monday/Tuesday “weekend”. It finally felt like spring here in Providence; The sun was shining, the picnics were plentiful, and the birthday cake was delicious. We hiked, brunched, tanned, and even made a little bonfire last night…so wonderful! But now it’s time to head back into the studio to start some serious work on The Sleeping Beauty– stay tuned!
I can’t believe it’s already Friday! These weeks are just flyyying by. The photos above are a little peek at what I’ve been up to in rehearsals these days…dancing the Actress in Boyko Dossev’s Mother Goose Goes To Hollywood and also what choreographer George Birkhadze likes to refer to as “Bomb Squad” in his new piece entitled My Sorrow. February is always a really busy month for me, ballet tends to intensify just before the March layoff. But whenever I start to feel overwhelmed or on the brink of meltdown, I try to remind myself just how lucky am I to wake up everyday and do what I love…and get paid, too! Sometimes this world is a beautiful, mysterious place. Anyway, happy Friday loves and have a fabulous weekend! xx
