All over bar the shouting
Tonight I'll get to see (or doze through) parts of the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in London.
Since ours is a mixed marriage household (American/Australian) any watching of the Games of the XXX Olympiad has had International Implications - excessive information for her: I have had to dig deeply to find mine.
For her: entitlement to "gold". For me: moral victories in medals of other colors. I relished the comment of an Australian swimmer made to the Aussie Press after being forced into silver by one one hundredth of a second " I will quickly get over the loss; I will be a better person because of it."
It has been a pleasure to watch the best of the world's best perform, and in so many sports and disciplines.
But my distraction is over; it's time to get back to work. I expect it will take a few days of recovery yet.

I have a soft spot for the activities of the PARA Olympics (Inspiration Paradise) still to come, So I may be distracted yet awhile.
