Rockefeller Center, New York December 8, 2011
The lights in New York are amazing. And one of the major attractions in fall and winter is the ice rink at Rockefeller Center. You know the old saying once you haven't done something for a while and you try it again? It's easy like remembering how to ride a bicycle?
I am here to inform it does not apply to ice skating! My ankle's and legs acted as if they had no memory to being strapped and laced up tightly each winter past my teen years in ice skates. My body moving with grace and speed. Sometimes playing better than the boys in a neighborhood game of fierce ice hockey. My hero's were Chicago Black Hawk player's Stan Miketa and Bobby Hull. I even had my very own Chicago Black Hawk ice hockey stick. Tonight, I looked more like an old sketch on an episode of "I Love Lucy."
The final photo taken after a solid hour of falling on my butt is of me on the ice standing upright among strangers. If only for a brief moment, and yes with a little help, I can finally claim bragging rites, I did it!
On a more important note, the holidays can bring added stress to an already stressful world, and a family experiencing violence in the home look for protective angels to surround them, to get them through, and to keep them safe. And I am asking for you to help me help those stay safe!
