i watched her spin around in circles effortlessly on the ice, she makes everything look effortless with her eyes closed and a small smile playing on the corners of her mouth. she glides along the ice without faltering in her routine, so graceful that at times i would lose myself in the beauty of the moment and forget to catch my breath. there are times when she falls but she picks herself up quickly. how does she do that, i wonder. for i would feel as if i were dancing on a thread, tiptoeing on a tightrope, afraid that the ice beneath my toes would crack. yet as i watch her i realize that i have not even tried and that is what sets us both apart
