At the contemporary dance show tonight there was a dancer about my size (although her thighs were curvy with muscle, whereas mine are curvy with gelatto). She appeared so tiny and fragile next to everybody else, despite everyone around her being thin, too.

I rarely get to see somebody my own height when I am not at eye level to them-- up close we all look about the same. I saw her after the show, and the appearance of frailty was gone. Perhaps it was the stage that made it so, but I wonder-- from far away do all of us shorter people look close to being blown away by a stiff breeze?

(PS, we're talking 5 feet, about a size 2, here.)
