This picture always makes me kind of sad. I can't remember if this was a grave for a youngster, but I assume it is. Those are always sad anyways, and to put a statue such as this only makes it worse, don't you think? As long as it brought the parents comfort, I guess that's all that matters.

Have you been watching the Olympics? I have. I think my writing will slow down for the next couple of weeks. Of course, the 2008 Olympics didn't stop me from reading the Twilight books. I just couldn't put those down!
Writing is a little different, though. I require either complete silence or so much noise I can't distinguish anything (like white noise). I cannot write if I can make out the conversation (or even part of it) – I tend to listen!
I do enjoy watching the Olympics, though. Kind of hard to watch it on mute, though. So, as long as they only show basketball games, soccer games, or boxing during the day, I'll be able to write (because I don't much care for those sports).
My favorites? Swimming, gymnastics, beach volleyball, cycling, diving, and track & field. There may be others, I just can't think of them.
If you're watching, what are your favorite events?
