a fairytale summer

cottages, mountains, rabbits, chipped tea cups, red ribbons,
pocket watches, glass beads, a field of flowers, butterflies, reflections,
unicorns, old books, trees, castles, rocking chairs, the stars and moon,
warm rain, mist, shadows, music, night gowns, old maps,
night, stories, folklore, bells, bare feet, a prism, treasures, dust,
long hair, white horses, moths, forgotten things, tree homes, mushrooms,
outdoors, flower petals, feathers, the woods, clouds, a wooden flute,
legends and myth, moccasins, a woodland stream, wind, smiles,
the land of counterpane, keys, gloomy tales, feather beds, and night time wakings

Well, I have some news. I quit dancing with my company. The pressure had just become too much, I wasn't having fun and I wasn't getting my school work done because of all the stress. I'm one of those people that just shuts down under stress, I just can't take it. So something had to change. There were many reasons, one being graduating on time, but there were other issues as well. I haven't quit dancing all together, I'm still taking two ballet classes and my lyrical class, all of which I couldn't bare to part with.
It's been really hard, but I feel like it's one of the best decisions I could have made, the new found freedom is just amazing. It's the most wonderful thing to not have to dance for anyone but yourself, to just dance because you love it and because of the joy it brings inside. So, that's what I'm doing, I'm dancing for the joy of it and because my feet won't let me stop.
Also, I will probably be rather scarce here, school has got me tied up on all ends, I even had to pack up my projects and craft supplies so that they wouldn't distract me. So, most of my posts will probably just be little writings or quotes, I hope you don't mind! I should be done with schoolwork in a month and hopefully back here, in full force, about two weeks after that. Thank you all for your support and sweet words, they mean so much to me.
Love, Clara
