the whale

My favorite place to be in the world is any skating rink, but especially this one. The paradise of the Yale Whale: peaceful, sunny, quiet, warm, with ice like glass. The soaring architecture and old wooden seats remind me of the West Orange, New Jersey rink I grew up in. Here is the only place I can fly on my own volition. Feeling blades carve into ice sooths, balances, and thrills me no matter what kind of day I'm having.

You are amazing and I am so glad that I know you just a little bit. I wish there were photos from Max's Window do you have any? I can just see you gliding on this beautiful ice. I will be thinking of you tonight when I watch the Women's Figure Skating. Keep in touch, I miss my ODACT friends. You can read about my trials and tribulations on my blog :)
