Extracts from this document...


Vikki Gilbert Oct '03 Here I am, sitting on our bamboo floor-seat looking out of the mud-strengthened window frame. Sun's streaming in; shining down on my husband's freckled nose, who's still sleeping dreamily, under the cool gossamer sheet. I can hear the sea lapping serenely, perfectly complimenting the high - spirited song of the Mango bird. Such tranquillity compared to the events of the past year. I've been living out a frantic life since October. It's nice to get away from all the chaos sometimes. It's not that I don't enjoy what I do - that's rarely the case, but spending the summer with my husband has been utterly blissful. This island has been in my dreams ever since I saw a deserted stretch of white sand & clear blue waters on the back of a 'special K' box - & now here I am! ...read more.

But dancing is my passion, & I can quite picture the gold plated pirouette woman sitting on the mantelpiece, back home. This was only the second West-end dance that I've choreographed for, and believe you me, it's a thrilling experience seeing your name celebrated, in some of the toughest critic's reviews. Maria's only tagging along for the last few months of her gap year, "all for experience" she said, with me as her apparent 'mentor'. Although it's more like a younger sister, with her being sally's daughter. Oh yes, I can hear the speedboat coming in. That's got to be Sally, at last. I hope she likes it! ...read more.
