#sol2014 Winter's Gifts and Glories

On the other side of the world, 
People are skating, skiing, competing,
Years of toil, training, practicing, 
Rapid-fire fast moments of glory.
Around these parts 
People are competing, too,
Chili cook-offs, snowman build-ups,
Chain-saw carving, Snowball lacrossing,
Ice build-up watching,
Slowly traversing winter's (hopefully waning)
Gifts and glories,
Her seasonal Slices Of Life. .

Are we ready for spring or what? Thanks for helping me see the glory of winter.

Snowball lacrossing just might be the only thing that makes me wish for more winter - it sounds like fun!

Snowball lacrossing!?! Sounds very interesting! Too bad it's SO cold here - my girls would try it!

I find myself really wishing for spring.. usually I don't mind winter.

Love the connection between the wonderful Olympics and our slices of life, especially now in winter! Beautiful, Anita!

Can't wait to pair your post with Tara's to show different ways that what's happening in real life can lead us to writing ideas. I like your analogy to the competitions happening on your side of the world.
