See those two trees dancing on the right? That pair has been together for years.
Their very first dancing lessons coincided with several days of a strong, persistent nor'easterly wind.
Although timid at first, they became more confident and learned to bend and be flexible after each storm. She took to it quicker than he did, but both moved whether they wanted to or not. The more of those nor'easter dances they attended, the more limber they became.
Sometimes--especially now that they're older--they dance as if they're the only ones around.
Most nights, though, they dance with the stars.
p.s. This is Chesapeake Bay Woman playing her own game of Interpret that Photograph. Here in Mathews, we learn at a young age to entertain ourselves with almost nothing.
