Mother's Day and Bee with a Drop of Water

It's Mother's Day and Yumiko and I just got back from seeing a formal dress rehearsal of the Matsuyama Ballet Company's production of Cinderella.  It was so unbelievably good.   The ballet dancers are all professionals and probably (no bias here) the best in Japan.  The woman who played the role of Cinderella was so utterly fabulous.  She was a tiny woman with the greatest expressions and the most beautiful dancing.  And so much stamina.  I cry at everything, but I really cried at the end of this production.  She forgave all her wicked step sisters (played by the funniest men) and they forgave her.  It was just too good to describe.  

On the photo front, here's a little bee taken this morning just about to have a drink of water.

  1. Kitty, what I love about this photo is that I can see the reflection of the trees in that tiny drop of water! --- Kate
