I DO THIS IN MY DREAMS
I sometimes find myself getting to another floor in a building via the escalator and absolutely have to fight the urge to take my feet from the steps and glide down to the next level through the air as if to be sailing in mid air. I think to myself, "I have done this before and I can do this", but good common sense takes over and I realize I cannot do this. How strange to have such an overpowering feeling when all the time you know it is something your mind is trying to convince your brain that you can do. The only thing I can make sense of this peculiar phenomenon is that I have dreamed this.
I do collect ice skates, roller skates and even the very old sidewalk clamp-on skates. I have always been fascinated by the sport of ice skating and have on rare occasions tied on a pair and made a very feeble attempt to glide on the ice.
Are you enjoying the Olympics? Oh for me the figure skating is just something akin to magic.
I am so proud of Joannie Rochette and her very poignant program of last night. My heart goes out to her, and her father and I just know how very proud her mother must be. The strength of this beautiful Canadian is so powerful. God Bless her heart.
We have a little ice on the roads and ground today. I have an errand to run and am bundled up like a pudgy snowlady just to make it to my car from the porch.
Enough ice to pull out those skates you ask?
Only in my dreams!
