It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Swan Lake with a twist

This week while I’m on holiday? Bits and pieces of ephemera and fun.

Isn’t that astonishing?

  1. Insomnia this morning, so I had time to watch the whole thing. Wow! The strength, balance, endurance demonstrated astonishes me. The dedication to get there. Loved it, thanks for sharing.

    Now, I’m feeling a bit lazy in my daily endeavors.

  2. I have never seen anything like it. I wonder who came up with the idea of balancing on another’s head! Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

  4. Goodness. That was amazing. Amidst my wonder I just had to think: that man’s chiropractor must love him. Think of the stress on his neck! Phew!

    Beautiful though.

  5. Wow! If Swan Lake were done like that all the time, I’d enjoy it much more! I loved the frogs.

  7. My jaw hasn’t dropped like that in a long time. And it dropped when I first noticed that she was standing on point on his shoulders, and then … omg that was truly amazing. THanks.

    Wasn’t it incredible? Her balance is phenomenal! I can’t imagine how much that must hurt the fellow, though: all her weight on the little block in the toe of her point shoes? Digging into muscle?? Ouch.
