And those that were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those that could not hear the music.  ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Photographed at ~ Du Petit Lac Des Cygnes

The Lady Constance sat upon the seat staring at herself in the mirror contemplating having to stand or sit this day for of all things a silly portrait.  Sticking her tongue out at her reflection she giggled.  Her parents the Duke and Duchess had commissioned this painting months ago as the artist Fragonard was in such high demand these days.  Her ladies maid entered her chamber, and on cue, Constance stood as Marie helped her dress. Turning this way and that in front of the mirror she was satisfied her parents would applaud her efforts.  Marie nodding her approval turned and left the room. Listening carefully as her footsteps faded, Constance convinced that she was now alone, hefted her skirts, sat down upon a chaise and began to remove her shoes as they pinched her toes,  probably because she went barefoot most of the time and she didn’t want to soil her new stockings either.   So, off they came too.  None would be the wiser if she walked carefully.  Laughing to herself she danced out to have her portrait painted, deciding that a barefoot duchess might soon be all the rage at Versailles.

Just a little teaser to the continuing story of Lac Des Cygnes.  Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥
