Degas' Little Dancer // I unintentionally ran in to this at The Met a couple of years ago. I had been dying to see it for as long as I could remember. I wondered into a quiet room, and there she was. Another woman did the same, just as I, and we both looked at each other, tears in our eyes. It was so beautiful.
