Skating in the key of life

Surprise! A Post


Out of the blue, after many months of nothingness, a post.

Since June, I have taken on some new roles at work, and between that and some shifts in skating hours, there’s been relatively little time for me to skate.

But this week, I actually had some last-minute meeting cancellations, and actually got on the ice three times, including two days in a row. That was awesome, but also let me know how out of shape I’ve gotten.

So well before the new year, I am trying to pave the way for a resolution: more skating to restore my sanity (or to get back into my old states of blissful insanity on ice).

I’ve been on and off the ice for much of the year, so will post some pictures that I took in past months that somehow I never got around to sharing. These will remind me that I need to return!

Don't see me on the ice? I may be in the classroom or at the theater, or hanging out with my family and friends.
