All year Moira and Maggie go to dance and practice and look forward to the spring recital. Moira, at 10, is a little more aware of herself and a bit nervous about getting the routine down and being on stage. Maggie, on the other hand, when I asked her if she was ready, said, “Sure! What dance am I doing?” Um, the one you practiced all year? And really, when the 3, 4 and 5 year olds got on stage, they were adorable and enthusiastic and what they did hardly resembled what I’d seen them rehearse… but who cares?

Like Mark Twain said, “Sing like no one’s listening, love like you’ve never been hurt, dance like nobody’s watching, and live like its heaven on earth.”
