Kindness; and the ballet

I like these words by Ralph Waldo Emerson …

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. 

This is my brief post for the weekend, put up late because I forgot to schedule one. I took my girls to dinner and then to the ballet on Saturday – Swan Lake – our first ballet. We left my dad’s at 5:00 PM and didn’t get back until 11:20, so it was a full six hours. (I had a helper stay late that day with Dad.)

We had a very enjoyable time. Lots of laughs, a new experience, and a wonderful needed change for me. 

Have you ever gone to the ballet? Do tell!

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!

  1. A perfect quote. I love the ballet! I have been to a few but my favourite has been The Nutcracker. I took my daughter for her 16th birthday and she loved it. I have seen it performed by a few different ballet companies but my favourite was by the Russian Ballet. So glad you enjoyed it.


  2. So glad you were able to get away, Lynn, and spend some time with your daughters. Sounds like you had a lovely time. My husband took me to see The Nutcracker in Boston a few years ago for my birthday. I don’t really enjoy going into the city (and we did get lost for a bit) but we finally found our way to the Opera House and very much enjoyed the production.


    • Thank you, Ruth! I have been wanting to see The Nutcracker ballet, and a friend told me it’s one I HAVE to see, so it’s on my wish list for when it’s scheduled for December. I’m glad you found the Opera House in time to enjoy it. 🙂 Thank you for your comment.


  3. The Nutcracker is a very popular ballet. I saw it a few years ago when a friend performed with a local amateur theatre group. They did very well.


I look forward to reading your greatly appreciated comments. Thanks for making my day! :)
