One Great Life Story of Coming Back

The following story from the NY Times this Christmas Day (and I hope they let you see the video) is all about coming back and understanding the beauty of living and life. Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish has an artificial hip and returning to the rigors of ballet at 55 years of age had to take great courage. There is a lesson here for all, young or old; feel life now, let every minute touch you.

"When you're younger, you have everything - you have the flexibility, you have no fear. But you don't savor every step, every movement of every fingertip, every beat of the music. I feel like I'm tasting food for the first time."

ELIZABETH ROXAS-DOBRISH, on dancing Alvin Ailey's "Revelations" again at age 55.
