The Last Dance With Me

Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com

We had laughed and cried and said
we would dance for many more years Leonie
But... the fates intervened
with their scissors
snipping the thread of life so suddenly

So, I'm dancing for you now, as I have never danced before
Leading the celebration of your life
Here in the Gypsy Camp.

Form a circle everyone
And dance the last dance with us.

Your right Luna. I have added some length to her dress. It was only meant to be Folly berge style dancing. She is a little more lady like now. :-)

I get the Folly Berg style, I think with the Snow White look it was even more riskee. So sorry, I didn't mean for you to change your drawing. I do like her fancy stockings! And she is having such a good time, which is what is most important.

Risqué is good Luna. I have achieved the effect I wanted. I altered my drawing because while I wanted le Enchanteur to be riskee I didn't want her to be indecent. My drawings are only ever done in one relatively short sitting. I complete one in about two hours and then scan. So it is not unusual for me to alter them later.

I don't have to say this of course, but I do want to say that this drawing was done especially for Leonie, with Leonie held clearly in my mind.

Soul Food has become far more than a web site and I have a close bond with those people who came with me to the Cave of the Enchantress. I met Leonie after our journey, towards the end of last year. She came here to my home a few times and as I said, was to be here again this week.

Leonie was such a delight and her eyes lit up when we talked about le Enchanteur and how daring she was becoming. She loved her becoming a bit risqué and she adored the challenges le Enchanteur threw out. As her daughter affirmed, she found some serenity while she was with us and that will always humble me.

I am grieving, perhaps more than I would grieve for lots of folk who I have known in the ‘real world’. Soul Food is my reality and the bonds tied cannot be severed by death. We just move into another realm and need to find new portals to meet again.
