Letter To Jt Miller (1926-2006)

Dear Daddy,

Thank you for giving me the gift of life
a lifetime opportunity
to pursue my dreams

Thank you for my gender
my womanhood
from this gift I have learned to appreciate
the ability to nurture myself
and those I love

Thank you for the gift of dance
from your love of dancing
I have learned to dance for myself
and contribute a joyous spirit to the world

Thank you Daddy for asking,
before you left this earth

Are you okay?

Your question healed my heart
gave me hope
to challenge myself to become to the best woman
I was created to be
to keep on loving myself
and the world through dance

Love,
Your daughter
Jacqui

Jacqui, a spiritually moving piece... a dance in and of itself. Beautifully done! Brian
Very lovely Jacqui. I lost my dad in 1994 and I know how painful it is to miss them. I'm sorry for your loss. You sound like a strong woman. Great job. Sincerely, Mary
Whilst evoking sadness, this piece is brilliantly joyful and full of hope. A seriously well-crafted tribute. It is as unique as it is personal - I almost feel like an intruder to read it. But glad I did. Dance on! Write on! t x
