A little note for fun

- Cecilia! Youíve cried once more! Youíre not going to spend all your time in despair because Marcus is no more coming to see you! Youíd better practice your gym competition!
- Iím not going, Mom…
- What, youíre not going! At 14, it should be clear to you that itís time to take things seriously. I am sure you can win!
- Well, go on, you…
- Very funny! Really, at the age of thirty, you think I still have your capacities?
- You are a prima ballerina.
- Yes, but dancing is not the same thing. The technique is not the only matter. You have to express feelings; I show joy, love, and sadness. Youíll understand when you get mature.

THE HUNDRED FAMILIES
HAVE SHARED SPOIL

THE SAGE HAS NOTHING
