     Ok, so I might sound like a geek, but I liked the movie Xanadu with Olivia Newton-John. In this movie, she portrays a rollerskating Muse linking up a past recipient with a present recipient to create a strange schizophrenic nightclub.
     I always wished I could skate like that, with such skill & joy. Oh, believe me, I tried. I had both regular skates & rollerblades. I used to alternate them as I found they worked different muscles.
     But I was slow, and in the end it all came down to the fact that I was afraid to fall.
     So I'll keep enjoying Xanadu, and skate along in my mind.


  1. I remember Xanadu! I've always been an Olivia Newton-John fan. She was one of the few singers who managed to do rock, pop and country - all successfully.

    I read recently that her sister has cancer... brain cancer, I think it is. Very sad.

  2. I was never much of an Olivia Newton-John fan, but I would have loved to be able to roller-skate like that too. I shared your fear of falling. Because ouch!

  3. I loved Xanadu. The reflections song plays in my head just thinking about the movie.
