What then is freedom?
The power to live as one wishes.
--Marcus Tullius Cicero
Roman statesman, 106 BC - 43 BC

Fly and be free, Johnny.
Be true to yourself; live your life;
know that thousands around the world
support you and love you.
No matter what. ♥

I love the pic of Johnny blowing bubbles.

I connect bubbles with freedom, rainbows, being as carefree as a child, fun, happiness, bright eyes, laughing...a perfect personification of Johnny. Love it.

Hope Johnny's skating spectacular will be so very successful that it will change people's minds about the potential of skating for entertainment.

I'll want to be at a ringside seat watching whatever Johnny does because whatever he does is so very full of heart and soul. The beauty of Johnny is part and parcel of his being in touch with himself and his freedom (and compulsion) of expression.

Thank you, Johnny and Misfit Mimes, for sharing your journeys.

As I stated elsewhere, "Rock on my fabulous 'younger Femme sister'. Go for the gusto that makes your heart happy."

Personally, I am glad that Johnny has made the decision to not compete this next season, but rather will continue on in his artistic genius endeavors for another year. This is something I'd spoken about with him after the Seattle HRC's award dinner last fall. I think Johnny will be a stronger competitor for having taken the time to allow his creativity to blossom in other areas, for he will return to competition feeling more personally fulfilled and whole.

Thanks again Binx for your fabulous blog:-)

and, of course, all these projects are SO important cause they're setting the foundation for his future (after ice skating) and getting his name out there. we all want him to be happy and successful, so his projects are important!
