DP Daily Prompt: Practice Makes Perfect Post by Ranu

I’d love to be able to skate.I know it requires talent. I won’t be able to tell whether I have talent for skating. I was born in a temperate climate, that fact in itself gives me a large X,next when I came to a place where the temperatures dip down to minus 20,learning to skate would be a futile effort on my part. It is too cold .I am not used to it. It will be STRIKE 2.  Then somehow  if I get acclimatized,the age when youngsters learn to skate,I unfortunately passed it which is STRIKE 3   ,in  Baseball if it is strike 3 it means ,pack up your bag and leave. I  am happy to just watch Yamaguchi,Kwan,Ekaterina Gordieva and others and dream I will be reborn  one day    in a cold climate,where I’d learn to skate and practice hard to become perfect like the ones I’ve mentioned.

For now I’m happy to watch their double and triple jumps!

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this.

    I too marvel at the feats of skaters and other athletes. They have invested thousands of hours of practice and sacrifice to become so proficient. Sometimes their proficiency can seem so flawless that one wonders if it’s real.

    All good wishes,

    robert
