The header picture on my blog is from a performance I did about 2 years ago. In it, I was playing a squirrel in a new ballet about autumn. In the pose, I was trying to convey a sense of longing or of reaching for something (presumable nuts for the winter). I chose this for my header picture because of the title of my blog. In the about me and dancing sections, you can read about my struggle with ballet and food. I thought this picture, with its sense of longing, helped to portray that.
In time, I will likely redesign my blog, including the header. But I’m always going to keep this picture. It’s the original, so it has to stay.
