Self Portrait Archives 2009: Renewing My Strength (5 Images)

I had just gotten home from a summer of dancing with Nashville Ballet, and had a few weeks off before heading back to the Joffrey Ballet in New York City.  My body had begun deteriorating much more rapidly at that point, and I knew my ballet career was coming to an end.  In preparation for my transition into life after dance, I had gotten my first tattoo: an eagle’s wing on my left foot.

“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”  Isaiah 40:31
