I stumbled on some old pictures of myself, back in the days when my only after school activities were piano lessons and ballet class. In every ballet photo I seemed to be pointing at something with my right hand.
The logical explanation is that I just wasn’t a very good ballerina. But now, after all these years, I’m wondering if I was really trying to send a message, maybe to a future Chris, or to someone else who might see this photograph and know exactly what I was trying to tell them.
So, I’ve decided to hold a Name this Picture contest. Whoever comes up with the best photo caption which explains why I’m pointing that finger or what I’m pointing at will win one of my books for animal lovers and a Rainbow Bridge Wristband. The prize can go to you, a friend, your veterinarian, or it can be donated to an animal organization. You choose the book and I’ll autograph it and send it and the wristband on its way.
I’ll be the judge of this contest, although if there are any ballerinas out there who want to consult let me know. You can post your responses here as a comment, post them on my Facebook page or email them to me at email@example.com.

I’ve given this a great deal of thought – how about a new Anna Pavlova and Prima Ballerina in Swan Lake or Sleeping Beauty….
You sound like someone who knows their way around a tutu! Swan Lake was my favorite ballet when I was a kid. Sadly, I have a few ballet pix of me from Swan Lake…looks more like Swine Lake!
Chris, it’s coolkat – and Anna Pavlova was a January baby so that seemed to fit.
Coolcat – I should have guessed! How did you know about Anna Pavlova?
