No Fear of Flying



"I pick the prettiest part of the sky and I 
melt into the wing and then into the air, 
till I'm just soul on a sunbeam." 

—Richard Bach


That's my daughter above. She's the dancer in front. This photo, which I converted to black and white, is a crop from an image that I posted with the rest of the Dance Concert photos a few days ago. To see the original photograph, go here. I posted this image again because I wanted to see it larger. I wanted to zero in on my girl. I love her concentration and sense of flight here. There's also a serenity in her expression, no angst or fear, just the feeling of doing it. This image reminds me that she is indeed taking flight. She's worked hard for this. And she's ready.
