This photo of the joy of a child dancing with a box is my entry in Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Happiness. The image is of one of my great nieces. I took this at the 90th birthday celebration of her great-grandfather. She had happened upon one of the birthday decorations – a small bag – and began to dance with it abandoning herself to the joy of the moment. Martha Graham, who has often been referred to as the mother of modern dance said: “Dance is the hidden language of the soul” and I think that was the case here.
