Just skate, it’ll be okay

An aside to the last post: Iqaluit’s Skating Club held their carnival this past weekend.  During the finale, all the lights were turned out.  All the kids had flashlights and coaches had glowsticks.  Lady Gaga’s ‘Just Dance’ played, and we skated figure eight after figure eight around the rink.  It was glorious.  The kids loved it more than I did, and that’s saying something.  They actually complained when they had to get off the ice, and usually the countdown begins before their skates are even on.

As much as I love to dance, I love to skate more.  And, I’m moderately better at it.

In any case, happy skating. Or dancing.  Or whatever makes you happy.
