Seeking Grace

Grace has a number of definitions. It can mean "a disposition toward kindness and compassion". It can mean "a sense of propriety and consideration for others". It can mean "elegance and beauty of movement and expression".

I think this week I am striving for grace. It is a quality much underappreciated, I think. When Michelle Kwan pulled out of the Olympics, her reasons embodied grace more fully than she has ever done on the ice.

I have always been a thoroughly ungraceful person, lumbering through life rather than gliding. But I think I can live in a graceful way.

I can try, anyway.
