Redemption

flight

I stood backstage staring at the vibrant feather that I was about to pin back into my hair, and I began to rememberย January’s performance…

This was our moment of redemption.


My bare feet slid across the stage, and my arms swayed to create abstract shapes that showcased the wonders of modern movement. It all happened so fast, and there wasn’t much time to overthink the steps that my body had instinctively began to do. I soared as high as I possibly could, and I felt like I was really able to live in the moment this time. Just like that, it all ended. Looking out into the audience, the six of us stood together and bowed our heads. The applause filled the theater, and our hearts filled with relief; we did it!

It was honor to perform with this incredibly talented group of dancers, and I am so thankful that I was chosen to be a part of this piece. It was such a wonderful opportunity, and I feel like I have grown a lot as an artist by discovering new ways to move. This piece has also inspired my own choreography because I was able to see how unusual movements develop into somethingย truly amazing.ย Overall, I really loved this dance, and I hope that I have more opportunities to work with brilliant minds like the choreographer behind “Flight.” Thanks for everything!

It has been way too long since the last Parakeet Post, so Kiwi & Olive are demanding their monthly highlights on the blog again… I know a few of you were quite concerned by their absence, but they are okay! It is no secret that they had been getting significantly less attention throughout these past few months as my schedule became tighter, and they no longer had the luxury of constant interaction when I stopped my homeschooling program. This year has definitely been a challenge to balance everything and keep up with posting in general, but I am starting to get used to the new norm. However, I have a special announcement…

The Parakeet Post has returned! Kiwi & Olive are welcoming all of their fans back because they missed everyone so much. ๐Ÿ™‚ For those of you who have recently joined Maysa Rose, the Parakeet Post is an amusing collection of posts that are featured monthly to share the sweet moments of these two birds. I hope that you enjoy their upcoming posts!

Vibrant feathers gracefully float to the bottom of the cage as Kiwi undergoes her springtime molt. She poses for a photo, and I quickly capture the moment for this Parakeet Post. I love this beautiful budgie. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am getting through a few exams this week for school… I have to say, it was nice to have some help! Thanks, Kiwi, for making this morning a more pleasurable experience. It is never fun to take a test, but spending time with YOU is the best. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Tuesday from many feathers of fun!
