A ballerina appeared on a door on Dominick Street in Galway last year.
Sadly, she’s not there any more.
I think she clicked her heels three times…
…and woke up somewhere else.

That’s a shame. It beats the usual daubs like “Tracey sux cox for cigs” and the like
The answer may lie in The Valentines, and she was dancing away on February 14th.
Sometimes in places where one would expect them least, most amazing things are to found.
On second thought: She’s not really disappeared (as to be seen).
Jams: It is a shame. Galway has more than its fair share of crass slogans and empty tagging, but sometimes its street art does something unexpected and wonderful.
Sean: It’s possible! I have no record of the door from February, but I know its visitor was there in June. When I have a photo of the same scene as it is now, I’ll add it to the set above.
I miss her.
Ah, Stan, when writing ‘as to be seen’ I did not add in your photographies.
Did I mention I like each photo?
That is beautiful, Stan. A daylifter on the blighted urban scene.
So gracefully refreshing…
PFW: Me too. But maybe she’ll return.
Sean: Thank you. Your meaning was clear!
WWW: It is lovely, or rather was. ‘Daylifter’ is a handy word. One of yours?
Claude: She made magic of that neglected old door.
Hi! I read your blog regularly and truly enjoy it. I cam across a few clips on youtube that might be of interest to you. I posted them in my blog. Keep up the good work with the blog!
What a startling thrill. A collage in real time.
Her dance card was full and she just had to leave. Makes me think of the fairytale “the 12 dancing princesses”,all silver leaves and worn out shoes.
Thanks for catching her.
Anne: Thank you.
Annie: You might be right about her dance card. I hadn’t thought about that fairytale for years.
Hello. Sean Jeating referred to this on my post today and I’m glad he did. Beautiful photos of beautiful street art.
Welcome, Syncopated Eyeball, and thanks for your kind comment. The ballerina was beautiful while she lasted.
You have a very interesting blog, Stan. I had actually read your post on words with no letters a day or so before Sean directed me to your lovely dancer. I’ll most definitely be back,
[…] the original post. I’ve changed the text […]
