    Misty Copeland is most likely the best ballerina in the world. She has accomplished so much in her life thus far. At present I am sculpting a figure of her in a dance pose of second position on point and hope to present her with it. Yes I am an admirer from afar. I admire her determination of the dance, of her body, and most of all of her mind and basic character. I first learned of Misty Copeland from my orthopedic surgeon, he showed me an image of her in the arabesque pose and I was so impressed with her body musculature that I felt moved to try and do a sculpture of her. I am a retired psychotherapist, and fully appreciate the talent she has developed through agonizing work and at the same time I was so moved by a TV interview whereby she shared so much of her thoughts and ideas of a personal nature. She I believe, is very close to, being one of the closest one can come to, at the highest level, of one's own goal toward perfection. If I might say to her, "you are one hell'ava girl!!! Keep it going - you are an inspiration for others.
