FS: US Nats 2017 FS recap

The not so predictable US Figure Skating Championships were marked by a surprising record score, two Chen’s rising to the top, and comebacks to admire.

FS: Canadian Nats 2017 FS Recap

Last day of competition for the Canadian Nats didn’t change my perspective that these were totally predictable, the only exception being on the ladies events where Kaetlyn Osmond and Gabrielle Daleman, despite some trouble Osmond claim the title stepping up with and elegance and grace that Daleman couldn’t match despite the huge marks she got….

Random Reflections: The Wait

2. THE WAIT In an instant, it was over. A wait that was resumed in one hour and a half. A wait that lasted for eight years. Suddenly nothing. Not a word, not a touch. Just your eyes. A moment of joy, a goodbye. Nostalgia. Only now I see your face. I recognize the long forgotten…
