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!
