In the comedy “Groundhog Day” Bill Murray experienced the same day again and again, stuck in a time loop until he got the day”right.” What day would you choose to repeat until you get it right? Do you think it’s ever possible to get life “right?”
The day I’d choose to get stuck in a time loop,is when I first started learning to skate. I went day after day with the same result, I kept falling down.
I wonder if time stopped would I have learned to skate? I guess I’d still be there on the ice waiting for someone to pick me up.
It happened one day in Mount Royal Park, my husband took me there to learn to skate. There were skaters having a good time and there was I stuck on the ice,a little girl took pity on me she extended her hand to help me glide along with her, as usual I fell down, she came to help me stand up I could not, I thanked her and let her go.
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!
