Nutcracker

Christmas season officially begins when we go see the Clytie Adams Nutcracker! And we got to take Graham and Mel this year which made my heart BURST I was so happy. Graham loved the soldiers and the mouse king, the buffoons, and of course the paper program. He did such a good job of sitting the whole time, he loved being by the percussion section and seeing the pit. It was honestly so wonderful to get to share something that means so much to me with him. I’ll never have the right words to describe how Clytie Adams and Nutcracker and ballet shaped me, but suffice it to say that I am who I am because of the years I spent in the studio and on the stage. It is a painful nostalgia to remember some of the best times of my life there, and I sometimes want them back. But it’s the best kind of nostalgia.
