Funny - when I first saw the ballet in person, I hated it, for the reasons you describe. I didn't want to hear the shoes scraping along the floor or the thuds when the dancers landed their leaps. It ruined the illusion for me. I still prefer to see it from far enough away that I can't hear anything but the music.

HI Laura, I love the sound of ballet shoes slapping the floor as dancers take their positions before the curtain goes up or in between movements when there's no music. The really great dancers don't make any sound when they land their leaps, they're that light and controlled - it's amazing.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
