Delivering gold…

February 19, 2010

If you believe in the work you’ve put in you’ll get the results…

Jon Montgomery, Canada’s Skeleton Gold Medalist

The night before the Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games I had a dream that I was washing the morning dishes,

in front of this fabulous big picture window…

As I looked out the window,

admiring the beautiful garden,

I could hear the sound of Canada Geese with my bird ears…

The honking amplified,

and then all of a sudden the skein synchronized itself into a vertical flyby,

flashing the underside of their tail feathers to show me,

that each one of them had been stenciled with the image of a Canadian flag,

as I stood at the sink with my hands in warm soapy water…

I have no idea what it means but I woke up happy,

and with a sense of everything being in perfect alignment…

Calling a name that's lighter than air...

After cleaning the fridge,

and vacuuming under the couch,

I rode my bike to work on some pottery for the late afternoon…

At the intersection of Quebec and Terminal,

I waited for pedestrians to pass and I noticed that the Great One was sitting in the passenger seat of a Buick Enclave…

A police officer in charge of civilian security approached me…

He said,

If you step up onto the curb with your bike,

in just a moment you’ll get to see Wayne Gretzky go by…

I flipped the bird and said,

You must mean that Wayne Gretzky is going to get to see me…

Tell him that if he rolls down his window,

I’ll clean his clock for him…

Free of charge…

Mr. Policeman wasn’t sure how to take in the information and direct traffic at the same time…

Not everyone can Crosby a Hiller in a shootout…

I quickly reassured the constable before things got defensive,

Don’t worry,

it’s hands free technology…

He won’t even know what hit him,

but he’ll definitely feel it,

later…

With a word she can get what she came for...
