I started figure skating when I was 7. Skating is a very, very intense sport. It’s all self-generated. You have no one but yourself.

Vera Wang, New York Magazine

Found this surprisingly nice advice from Vera Wang. I knew she liked figure skating, but I didn’t know she was a figure skater. Somehow missed that thread when she was designing all of Michelle Kwan’s outfits.

Figure skating, in retrospect, might have been the worst possible sport for me, personality-wise. Might have done well from a team sport. Oh, well. Here I am!

This poem is relevant every single year of my life. I’ve posted it so many times before, but here it is again, because once again, I feel it so acutely:

“Finding Is Losing Something Else”

Finding is losing something else.
I think about, perhaps even mourn,
    what I lost to find this.

Here’s a lovely song to send you out into the wild long weekend. Last night I looked through a box of old photographs and although I’m trying to cut back on “stuff” and “clutter” and “things,” I miss having photos of friends and family to put in frames. I lugged 3 heavy film cameras back with me so I might as well use them.

“Barnes creates a detailed two-page spread for each match he commentates for BBC Radio Newcastle. The notes are divided into two color-coded segments: The left-hand page contains background information on Sunderland’s opposition—the club’s starting XI from its last fixture, previous results, and stadium details—while the right-hand side is updated in real time as the action happens.”—via Eight by EightThese are beautiful.
