Happy Birthday...

...Martha Graham.
Even though she was born May 11th, 1894 and would have been 118 years old today this artistic genius is very much alive to the young dancer in our life.  Years ago, when Emma was nearing the final pages of Martha Graham's biography she handed me the book and said, "Mom, I just can't finish this."  When I asked her why Emma teared up a little and said, "I just really don't want her to die." Today Emma, keeps Graham's spirit alive by being  devoted to the psychologically complex modern dance technique she pioneered.  Emma is  loyal to her talented instructors and even hopes to visit the Graham School in the coming years; I think it is bound to happen!
