Time out

Yup I'm taking time out to watch the Olympics.  I cheer for every winner and feel sad for everyone that doesn’t do what they trained to do.  A fall is heart breaking to me, so much work to be lost in seconds.  I also feel sad for those that win and act if it is no big deal.  I was delighted to watch the ladies on the USA gymnastics team swarm around their team mate that secured their goal.  To me, this is what the Olympics is all about, bringing together those that worked so hard and achieve their dreams.  Gives me hope.  Yes, I still remember watching Nadia Comaneci in 1976 and Olga Korbut in 1972, these new wins do not dim their successes but add to the richness of my experience.  I feel so much when watching the Olympics.
