I'm interested.


PS--Several years ago I commented to my mother that I wished I had kept
doing ballet when I was little, as I probably would have been good at it,
and I asked her why she hadn't kept me in the classes. She looked at me
funny, and said that I had refused to go back after falling down onstage
in the production of Swan Lake, even though I had gotten back up and
continued. I have no memory of this. In fact, I do not remember performing
at all, though I do have clear memories of practicing Swan Lake with the
class (I was about six). I find this odd.
