…or, seeking inspiration in far-off places.
For someone who barely watches TV, I’ve been watching a lot of it over the past week.
The Olympics, of course. Volleyball and gymnastics are my favorite, but I’ll watch other things as well. Usually while repeating “How do they DO that?”
The gymnastics have been astonishing. (Except for that announcer’s comment about how they all looked like they were hanging out at the mall. THE MALL. Grrr….) So graceful, flexible, and strong. Simply amazing. And having been a fan of beach volleyball for years–and played indoor volleyball in high school–I’m continuously impressed by the feats on the sand.
I’m not such a huge fan of swimming or diving, but they are entertaining. Looking forward to the running events next.
This is what I’ll be doing for the next few weeks.
