Portrait Project – 21/52



“If he thought at all, but I don’t believe he ever thought, it was that he and his shadow, when brought near each other, would join like drops of water, and when they did not he was appalled. He tried to stick it on with soap from the bathroom, but that also failed.” Peter Pan by James M Barrie

I could not help but thinking of Peter Pan and his shadow while watching Ms. 6 (and her shadow) twirling around, jumping and dancing one fine afternoon after school. It was like watching two little girls dancing from where I sat. There was no music. She was just happy and had a lot of energy to burn. She felt so much joy she probably thought she would burst if she didn’t do anything about it. It’s how she rolls, and isn’t that just so wonderful to watch.

K and her shadow
