On a cool Winters Eve, the three Graces pause amidst the bustle of a crowded hall. The strains of a sprightly English country dance spill out through an open archway, revealing the splendor of the ball within. Dancing couples progress up and down the sets, creating an ever-changing sea of color in the in the center of the brightly lit hall. Around the edges of the polished wooden floor, friends and acquaintances chatter away while sipping on Tea and Punch.
