It was summer, very dry – which we were not accustomed to. We had clothes drying on an outdoor line. The clothes dried in spite of the rain. It was surreal for folks who came from a humid island that is at sea level!

Then again ballet slippers are only durable with proper care and require much time and effort to put on correctly 😉 ~Cheers, Jules Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: March 2, 2014 at 2:37 am Thanks for the clarification. I was imagining flimsy footwear! 😉 On Sun, Mar 2, 2014 at 3:20 AM, Mark M.

Reply M.Z says: March 2, 2014 at 11:05 am Rain disappearing without doing any benefit to anything, but just lives on to be useless dust. Incredible piece!
