Choreography

[ Today's meme is courtesy of Thursday Threesome ] :Choreography: The art of symbolically representing dancing::
Onesome: -- Choreography: What do you choreograph in your life? Your morning routine? The dinner ritual? How you study?

Twosome: -- The art of symbolically: Art? Hmmmm... Sure, what do you like to have? ...or do you? ...but how about that little symbol you keep on your desk or headboard? The one you keep because??? I mean, if you can share that...

Threesome: -- representing dancing: No, not 'do you dance?' (although that's fine too!); rather, which type(s) of dancing will you stop and watch for a moment? Ballroom? Swing? Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey?


Onesome: -- Choreography:

I choreograph everything having to do with the cats - their meals, cleaning the box, giving them snacks, play time, nap time. Cats are creatures of habit and ritual. Cats are highly choreographed animals.

Twosome: -- The art of symbolically:

We have a lot of art. We're conflicted people; we love to read (hence we have linear miles of bookcases :-), we love to look out of our windows (we have a great view), and we have art to hang. It's difficut to optomize wall space!

We have a couple of framed Escher prints, a B. Kliban Cat print, a Chinese piece with embroidered birds, a few of my needlework projects, various pieces purchased at crafts fairs over the years, and works by J. S. Perry and Delight Prescott. We've got more of the latter two, especially, than we have space to display.

I also consider my ruby glass collection to be art, along with our crystal animal figurines, our glass paper weights, and various small sculptures. I collect small cat scuplptures and figurines in many materials. I've got a lot of figurines of cats, dragons, wizrds, unicorns, and others in a display cabinet in my office.

I'm also a big fan of soft-sculpture art, better known to most people as "stuffed animals" :-) I have a large collection of beanie babies, teddy bears, stuffy "dog toys" and more (also living in my office).

Threesome: -- representing dancing:

I don't dance, but I'll watch ice dancing any time, any where.

Other than that — Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers! My sister and I grew up in Central Pennsylvania in a town that got several of its cable stations from New York City; they showed lots of old movies weeknights at 11 pm and on Sunday afternoons. If a movie was on that my mom liked, we watched. One week we all stayed up late all week because the 11 pm movies were all Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers! It didn't matter that it was "a school night"; we stayed up and watched Fred & Ginger.
