Add here Piper’s message when seeing, later that day, their “hilarious faces” in the Kiss and Cry: “No words can really describe this moment other than HOLY MOLY”. Well, “hardly anything”: 70.70 points, a Seasons Best, and the highest they have ever scored in their career so far. Taking out the classical music in their short dance (“Six German Dances” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and “Air Pour Les Sauvages” by Jean-Philippe Rameau) and staying in the character of the Beatles routine, adding to “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” bits of two other famous pieces, “Norwegian Wood” and “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”. …and then rewind to the end of her skate in Boston – her beautiful, relieved smile, her arms and knees on the ice while catching her breath, with everyone in the arena on their feet.She’s done it again: felt the “fulfillment and joy” after a good skate in competition.And I’ll definitely miss this jewel of a short dance, to, maybe, the most famous Waltz of all times (“The Blue Danube” by Johann Strauss II).
I see Ashley Wagner laughing hysterically, bottom on the ice, at the end of her glorious Samba – definitely the best short program she’s ever skated, and a wonderful display of emotions in front of the home crowd.And do allow us to initiate a particular way of looking at the disciplines: elaborate scenes, episodes (you’ll recognize them when reading…) and, among them, like rain drops into the big ocean of the competition, bits and pieces, images, feelings, nuances.
