My Darlings, what a lovely way to pass the time “en pointe.”
 Arching your back, trying desperately to counterpoint the feet,
The smile on your faces can not hide the pain of it all.

    Hi Andrea, The very minute I put it in the contest the PS site went down and it locked up my computer. I sent a Soup Mail to the sponsor to verify it went in the contest, I just haven't heard back yet. I sure hope it made it in. Thanks for your impression of the effort. All the best JT
