Quotable Tuesday: Food for Dancers

"Before I was born my mother was in great agony of spirit and in a tragic situation. She could take no food except iced oysters and champagne. If people ask me when I began to dance, I reply, 'In my mother's womb, probably as a result of the oysters and champagne - the food of Aphrodite.'"
-Isadora Duncan, American dancer (1878-1927)

Sigh. How times have changed. I wonder what it means for Dixon that oysters and champagne were some of what I missed most while I was pregnant...
