The Olympics

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. ~ Johann Van Goethe

I love the Olympics, well most of it. The figure skating is beautiful, while the moguls and half pipe are exciting as is the speed skating. And the curling is - well - I'm sure they're sick of being the butt of so many jokes. I wonder, if I had the chance, would I ever try bobsledding or doing the luge. Maybe, but not a 90 mph. Do they have something like a bunny luge?

I think what gets me about all of it, is the intensity of the participants. Even though most won't medal, they all strive to be the best that they can be. That's how they got there. It's a lesson for all of us. The Olympics give me hope, exhileration and a kick in the ass to get moving.

Valentine's Day

I had this nice picture I wanted to post for Valentine's Day but after 15 + minutes of waiting to down load the friggin' thing, I got disgusted and gave up. One stinking, lousy picture. Geesh!!!!!
Anyway, I hope you had a nice day with someone close to you.

Super things

Hi all. Sorry this posting's a day late. Even though I really don't like football, I did watch the Super Bowl. It turned out better than I thought it would be.

Speaking of super things (How's that for a smooth segue?), my daughter's craft work is on the front page of the Craftster Blog. She posted her intricate paper cuttings several months ago and unbeknownst to her, they put it out front. It made her day. Am I proud of her, you bet. If your interested in seeing it, she goes by the name kinipayla. I don't know how long it will be there but you can probably put in her name and find it, if it's not there. This is also an interesting site if you like handcrafted items or are interested in learning a new craft.

Another super thing that happened is one of my critique partners, Kate Sheeran, had a short story accepted by Every Day Fiction, an on-line site that has new short stories posted every day for free. We're all happy for her. I hope you will go and read her story on February 24.

Well, I'm off to check out a blog party given by the Goddesses. Bye for now. ~ Donna
