Curling 23

These two weeks of competitive edging and medaling have taken the world’s center stage as the commoners vacation away from the newsish horror and monstrosity around them.  They’ve traded their anger for a few hours of joyful relief.  They’ve been able to get a glimpse of what their neighbor on the other side of the world really looks like.  Their narrow people perspective widens a bit.  They are able to feel what it might be like if we’d all ‘just get along.’  They see a ray of hope for a seemingly doomed race.

The medals are finally worn with wide smiles.

Then with vacation over, it’s back to the perennial games of CNN and Fox News.
