crème de la crème

i cannot stop watching this video of two ballet dancers, captured in slow motion at 1000 frames per second. i love when graceful dancers make ballet seem almost effortless, while those of us who’ve practiced for years & years know this illusion is anything but true. ballet is a demanding & difficult art.

my favorite part?: their synchronized grand jeté. so beautiful it hurts!
bravo.

xo, anna

presidents’ day

in honor:

 

by the ever-so-talented maira kalman, on thomas jefferson

so many of our presidents, however strongly we disagree with them, seem to me to be endlessly fascinating.  don’t you think?

xo, anna
