" All things are possible until they are proved impossible and even the impossible may only be so, as of now."
For years noone could explain scientifically how a bee could fly. It's shape isn't aerrodynamic and its puny wings had to carry a relatively large cargo. Recently, the answer to this dilemma was found. The bee beats its wings at 230 beats per second. Also, the bee can stretch out its wing beat amplitude to carry larger loads such as pollen. So how does this relate to the beautiful picture on the top? Well, I recently found out that I may not ever be able to safely go on pointe. To go on pointe I would have to work really hard and even so I could seriously damage my knees. But, I'm taking encouragement from the bee. I'm stretching and strengthening every day everything from toes to shoulders. Even more, I'm going on an alkaline diet which can increase flexibility and ease muscle tension.Ballet isn't the world to me but I always wanted to dance on pointe and do pas de deux. Hearing that I may not be able to go on pointe makes me want to go on pointe soo badly. Now, this post will end as it began with some quotes that inspire.
