Stayin' Alive...

...and true to her tastes and talents.

Dance has been a relative "late-comer" in She-Twin's palette of passions.

As a toddler, she was a compulsive artist....plowing through sketch pads, coloring books, and putting her MagnaDoodle to daily use. (She wore-out two.)

Music tastes beyond her years---and outside her era---have been in place since she was a wee toddler, when the Rolling Stones' "Paint it Black" was her favorite song, and black her declared favorite color.

In so many ways, the teen years bring back to the fore toddler-like behaviors---the pushing of boundaries and exhibited desire for independence and self-sufficiency come immediately to mind.

So too, She-Twin's artistic leanings and eclectic music selections have been reactivated.
So too, my maternal desire to retain her art created with impermanent media....

I remember having this conversation with you a few years ago, spurred by the pictures I posted of our girls' Magna Doodle drawings! Going through some older photos recently, I was reminded, I have a lot of those pictures! :)

We're big Bee Gee's fans, too!

Oh Mandy, I remember those images, too!

The BeeGees' "Run to Me" was on the kids' nighttime CD....such a beautiful song!

Love to you and yours, and have a happy fourth!
