Is it too early to think of July?

I just read the weather forecast--tomorrow's "wintry mix" perhaps the least appealing combination of snow-rain stuff that spits out of the February sky. 

So, I propose we all look ahead to July, specifically to July 19-22, the West Virginia Writers' Workshop.  Check out the faculty bios and other fun stuff.  I can almost feel the heat of July, the bright sun, the thunderstorms that will go north and south of us.

Video: Dance Now!

WVU's 57th annual dance concert: Dance Now! from WVU School of Theatre & Dance on Vimeo.

One important typo--Renee Nicholson (me) is a faculty, not student, choreographer.

Snow Day

Days of snow and bluster remind me of Waltz of the Snowflakes in The Nutcracker, which is, perhaps, cliché when you're a former ballet dancer.  Nonetheless, the scene outside reminds me of the swirly notes of Tchaikovsky. 

Outside, it looks like this:

Most people don't like winter, the snow and the cold.  A part of me relishes winter, the tucked-in feeling of turtlnecks and sweaters, the steam on hot beverages and soup, the icy pristine white all around.
