A Most Feminine Gesture....

I was taught to curtsy many years ago by my University girlfriend. I feel that it is a most feminine gesture and I love to curtsy to those when I am wearing a skirt or a dress. I admire the grace and beauty of ballet dancers and always strive for femininity myself.

Miss Julie- how beautifully put Sweetie! Curtsy, Jenni

Other than a curtsy .. I see the demure modesty of a woman arranging her skirt .. tugging at her hem to discreetly keep her lacy lingerie and stockingtops from view, as delightfully feminine.


Thanks for the beautiful comments Gerone!

The afternoon is full of shade full of light <br />
without any thickness of one more than the other at all; <br />
You can see right through and right down into the depth of the foreground<br />
of snow and snow blowing in...<br />
Of the light and shade of the afternoon; <br />
there isn’t any real distinction at this moment... <br />
Long gone is any weight of the summer pressing down... <br />
it is the haunt of winter these stark days...<br />
<br />
And there she was... in Her BEAUTY... standing before Me...<br />
Lady Jen... the Beautiful Jenni...<br />
I walked near enough to Her for eye contact...<br />
As I began to bow... my courtesy to this Woman of GORGEOUS BEAUTY...<br />
She did do as such a WONDEROUS Lady does...<br />
Lady Jennifer did curtsy to Me... <br />
<br />
AND suddenly the dark shadows abated... and I could see the Day much clearer...<br />
the Earth was Mor LOVELY than ever a time in all My decades had I known Her...<br />
Because I did bow to the BEAUTY OF LADY Jen<br />
Who did bos to the BEAUTY OF Me... on this splendid occassion...<br />
AND saw Spring BLOOMING... once gained Life Fulfilling gaze into Lady Jen's eyes...<br />
I slipped My hand into her hand...<br />
and WE Danced MERRILY all the Day long!<br />
Forever...<br />
<br />
and now and than<br />
We managed for each other<br />
the COURTESY... <br />
of the profound curtsy and bow... <br />
for Our Love was like no other Love... Merry and Gay... and RICH IN ENCHANTMENTS!<br />
<br />
Dance WELL MY DARLING... this DANCE OF Life!<br />
BE WELL MY DARLING... in this DANCE OF Life!<br />

*holds the corners of my pretty dress and curtsies to Jenni*

Oh "blush" Luv! Deep curtsy to my sweet Luv!

"Curtsy" to you Jenni! LOL

Curtsy to You Gerone!

Beautiful Lady Jennifer once more You decide to write about the curtsy...<br />
it is a feminine gesture that is sadly not utilized as often as once was...<br />
than again nor are women any longer under the same sort of tyrannical male oppressions...<br />
which is likely why the curtsy left us... <br />
<br />
I look forward to Our meetings... to the bows, the curtsies... the considerations!<br />
To the LOVE and INTEGRITY of us I Look most especially forward to... every day!!<br />

As a proud graduate of the Wendy Ward Charm School--it is good to always be prepared for you never know when you will meet (or be) a Queen!

Yeah, I was taught how to do this as a girl, but there really aren't too many times when you can do it. I'm no ballet dancer!

Thank you Demi!
