The Skating Lesson

P1110011small.jpg

As you might guess, the Frog Pond ice rink is a hive of activity on Saturday. I went down there for a few minutes to see what might catch my eye. This little girl was taking a skating lesson and having a terrible time just standing up. But she kept at it and at it and at it. Every time she fell down her nice instructor was right there to help her up.

And you know what? The kid was loving every minute.

I think there’s a lesson here for all of us.

I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader.
However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery.
I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it.

I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
