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.
