A huge favorite. Makes me want to find the queen and go dancing in the woods. (Maybe I want to BE the queen and lead the dancing in the woods.) I miss being agile. I daydream about getting back into ballet but so far it's just a dream (partly because my tendons still warn me about Highland dancing...)
I love the elvish dances in Tolkien's work, but the dancing in Smith is more magical still.
Watching ballet or even highland on youtube doesn't do that for me. I want the air to be fresh and new, and I want magic. Maybe that's heaven calling.
Please! Ah, that's good. Very good.
...down to the water to see the elves dance and sing upon the midsummer's eve.
