holiday skating.

last night i went with a few friends to what i lovingly call "old people night" at the rollerskating rink. you have to be over 18 to skate, but i would guess the median age to be at around 65 . everyone is very nice and very good at skating and lots of people wear special skating outfits. there is always a birthday {someone turned 93 last night!}, and that means that there is always cake to share. in addition to 'all skate' there are special dance portions of the night and all of the music is played by a live organist. it's a really wonderful, magical place and it makes me feel good to see people still enjoying life so much. i'm going to miss it.
