    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    This is very clever, Ms Coops! I love how you have played with the idea of faerie dancers putting on tutus like a girl might make a garland and wear it like a crown, as queen of the May or something. Or a lad might take a grass reed and use it as a whip against terrifying tigers. Very playful, and graceful.

    Sorry for saying it again and again, but this is one of my all time favorites of yours. I suppose I can say that because you depict dancers in so many wonderful ways. It's like the same repertory company performing different ballets. Same high standards and style, but different and fresh each time.

    I hear high wind chimes with this one, perhaps a flute like the god Pan might play to put them in such a frame of natural exuberance.

    If you ever saw dolphins playing with rings underwater, this has that same kind of extraordinary delight in the simplest iteration of nature.

    I hope you can get Youtube to play. The energy sort of matches, and seems as rare and wondrous, like viewing a game something only they know about. . .
