The Blue Caterpillar and Other Essays

From "The Blue Caterpillar":

"Sixty-seven girls and one adult danced in Alice. Eliza was the Queen of Hearts, and I was the Blue Caterpillar. I was excited. Never had I been in a ballet. Fifty-two years is a long time to be a chrysalis, and I was eager to split the pupal shell, pump up my wings, and flutter through an auditorium."
