So I really wanted to stick to my plan and write only from the lovely photos, artwork, and words of inspiration sent to me by all of you generous people. However, yesterday, I was standing on a corner in downtown Chicago waiting for the light to change so I could head to an appointment, and I looked up to find I could see into one of the practice studios of the Joffrey Ballet and the moment had a lot of personal depth for me and I felt the need to write about it and turn it into a story. So I am giving the Joffrey Ballet credit for inspiring me on story #9.

Summary: A woman waiting on a street corner for the light to change colors looks above her to see into a dance studio where professional dancers are practicing. This sparks contemplation on her own life and dreams and the moment becomes deeply important to her.
What I Like About This Story: I love writing about a single moment that looks like nothing from the outside but can be life altering to the person experiencing it.
