We learn a lot of lessons when we lose. During the last few Tae Kwon Do Tournaments, we've learned quite a bit. So, it was nice to have a winning day. Maya won gold today at the California Open, and Mina won silver. The best part was when Maya peeled off her gear post-match and she said, "I'm proud of myself." I said, "That's the best thing you could say, Maya. " I choked up and couldn't say much more.
Here are my favorite pictures of the day.
Taking off her gear Maya wins gold! Women warriors waiting Mina wins silver! Waiting to Compete A few more pictures are in the Flickr. Man, these girls were great.
I love my husband because he’s kind of a dick. But he’s soft with me and his lip quivered at our wedding. I love my daughters. They’re brilliant and funny, and I’m here to kick down mountains that get in their way. I’m a vegan, and all is right in my world because of it. I can still beat the neighborhood in HORSE because I have a bad-ass set shot. Justice is served well through fair food, and scarcity would be a myth if we shared more, damn. Yo soy una mezcla which leaves me mixed up sometimes. My commute bike’s name is Loops and she’s my favorite kind of car. I wish I had written Chronicle of a Death Foretold. I’ve endured 54 hours of tattoo work. But above all, I fiercely believe in the underdog.
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!" - Kerouac (As told to me by Marigoldie)
