It has been years and years since I last danced alongside my very talented little brother but I am beyond happy that he carried on dancing without me. This moment stunningly captured by Mat Simpson (check him out here: http://matsimpsonphotography.co/). This is so much more than a photograph, it is the ever-elusive and nearly impossible-to-attain-snapshot of a soul, a visual manifestation of passion. When I first saw this, I was immediately transported to our basement dance 'studio' where this little boy would pirouette without mirrors across the cement floor and tap his heart art to the beat of his own drum. He is still following that beat. See you in Toronto next week.
