Photographer Joe Whiteko sent me this wonderful image from Miss Ohio Talent Rehearsal.  I have always loved that split second before the music starts…that last deep breath, the quiet hush of the audience, the pause between the voice of the announcer and the orchestration when anything can happen.  I love that moment on the ice too, when your heart is beating through your chest and you can’t wait begin.  This picture is exactly how 2014 feels right now:  calm, quiet, reflective, ready for the music to start.
