My favorite sports are the iceskating events and the snowboarding and skiing jumps. I like the grace and musicality as well as athleticism. The races are fun but they seem so much less a matter of will and desire.
I read about Pussy Riot at the Olympics--it seemed like a publicity stunt. It was awful to have them told go away in such a matter, but they did know what to expect. I checked out their music--cranking but sort of raunchy sounding--I couldn't understand the Russian.
I guess the older I get the less likely I will be a rebel beating my head against a wall. Sometimes positive efforts to show desire, hope, goodwill etc. seem much less destructive.No one will forget Adelina Sotnikova, for instance, what beauty.
