George Balanchine, Tchaikovsky Pas De Deux
Suzanne Farrell and Peter Martins, 1976

"This shot is not posed—that is, they are in the middle of a rehearsal on stage. The stage was lit only with work lights, and I knew they wouldn’t provide adequate or attractive light for this photo opportunity, so I brought in one of my large, soft-box electronic strobes which I placed downstage right, out of the way of the dancers.
I like that both their faces are silhouetted in profile. Notice the callous on Suzanne’s left elbow…it’s not a bruise. I wonder what caused that.” [source]

It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.
