For a minute, I thought I’d take this photo challenge really, really seriously. That I would wax metaphorically about movement, and post a picture of a river or a doorway or a hall, and talk about change and journeys and the symbolic representation of life. Which is all well and good and a valid post.
But that’s not what I want to talk about today.
I wanted today’s photo challenge to be dynamic with in-your-face impact. I didn’t want metaphor today; I wanted speed and agility. Grrrl power. Take no prisoners. And so, for today’s photo challenge, I give you…
The Jingle Brawl was held on my birthday weekend, 2010, Williamsport, PA. Pre-game and intermission entertainment were provided by a punk band (more info about Snakes Are Strong here), and Santa was chased around by two reindeer and wrestled to the ground because he wanted to keep all the candy canes. Selfish Santa, foolish Santa. Derby ladies ain’t gonna stand for that. The day after the Jingle Brawl we went to New York and saw a Rangers game (they won), so all in all it was a sort of “mayhem with blood sports and boots of speed” weekend.
Ladies, that’s what I call getting things done. Thanks for the fine birthday weekend!
