Gnarled, quirky carrots in a celebrative dance

As soon as I pulled these carrots from the ground I laughed out loud. Their gnarled, quirky shapes made me think of dancing creatures. They inspired me to think of those who have been through a lot, who may no longer be perfectly shaped, but who choose to celebrate. Let's dance!
