Broadway Billy Elliot and Biting My Tongue

Alright! We are still in NY, and after visiting the Harry Potter Exhibit, a Broadway Show was up next! We had time to kill, so we wandered around Times Square and into Toys R Us . . .

I enjoyed the show, but still think I love the movie more.

After, we ate at Juniors . . .

I really enjoyed my pastrami sandwich but thought it was sort of slippery. Then the bill came and I realized I had accidentally eaten a tongue sandwich. This made me feel weird.

Inspirational Collage

Lisa and others,

It was a  sensory delight viewing your colorful ecletic collage that captures so well the vibrancy and variety of life's never-ending parade of images.

Its impact on me was heightened, first, by reminding me of one of the earliest times in my impoverished youth that I consciously linked thought and feeling in the concept/viewing of a collage. As an exercise in responding to a story read in class, my ninth-grade English teacher assigned each of us the artistic task of making a collage of images that we associated with the story. 

 I initially thought it was a "stupid" activity that I could not relate to. Since I had no frame of reference or  prior knowledge of  what a collage was, the assignment was an entirely new experience for me and, looking back, stands out as a memorable moment when education expanded my awareness or consciousness, lifting  me up from where I was to what I could be.

I naturally linked this minor "epiphany" to a specific image in your collage, namely the marquee for Billy Elliot, since that, too, is an inspirational story of a boy in poverty, wrestling with inner conflicts and becoming aware of  what he could be through the help of his dance teacher.  His journey, like my own, was an elemental,  archetypal experience defining the existential reality of  our shared human condition.
