THE PINK TUTU ATTITUDE…
I went to several pre-schools to take pictures of the cute little kiddos yesterday and today I’ll do another… they use the candid shots in brochures,etc..my way of giving back, (I don’t charge them)…during my visits to different classes yesterday , I encountered TWO little girls wearing pink tutu’s….I know one little girl was Olivia…never got introduced to the second one….but Olivia was definitely a free spirit..not listening to the teacher, dancing all over. The second little tutu girl was having THE BEST TIME EVER trying to eat the bubbles that her teacher was blowing for the class.
For those of you who have never read my little stories about “following the dream”..they’re somewhere here on the blog…in those stories my main character wears a pink tutu…well lo and behold when I went to Florida in the fall I found and bought, a pink tutu..(child-size)…I have worn it on my head and it seems to inspire all sorts of creativity….so it is now hanging in a place of honor in my studio….reminding me to take a break and let the mind waltz around in it’s pink tutu from time to time.
Watching those little girls yesterday absolutely confirmed what I already knew….pink tutu girls are different….Instead of joining a “red hat society” when I get older, I’m going to join the “pink tutu society”…provided that there is one…….I’m not sure if I’ll wear my tutu into restaurants like the ladies in the red hats do……..maybe if I have a convention in New Orleans… THEN we could wear our pink tutus into a restaurant…or go into one of those cool famous bars on Bourbon street and order a “Hurricane”.. I can only assume that wearing a pink tutu and drinking a Hurricane would lead to trouble…so just to be safe, I’ll make sure to tie “Bob” the horse up to the hitching post outside the bar…he’ll know how to get me home.
Now I’m wondering where I intended to go with this post……..Oh well….
