“...Your love is evident,' she says. 'But, darling, sometimes the ballet does not love us back.”

“She puts her mittened hands on the sides of my hood. “Okay, then remember: ‘Science is nothing but perception’—that’s Plato. He was all about getting out of the cave, seeing life from a new angle, in a new light, letting things move all they want. The ice we’re standing on is shifting as we speak.

Jennifer Longo
