BLOOMINGTON, IN, February 20, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Of the many visions to see at the rink, it is the athleticism and personal choreography of each skater plus the unique and colorful fashion styles of skaters and spectators alike that usually make up the written milieu on the sport of skating.
But rarely does the art and sport of ice skating is immortalized through a well-rounded anthology of poems that explores the essence of cherished personal moments at the rink through the entertaining perspective of the skier himself.
Author Richard Parham, whose self-published collection of poems dubbed "Poems from the Southend of the Rink" is an expression of what men think, see, and feel at the rink.
"The rink is also one of the few places on earth where one can experience two-dimensional flight on the skate floor whether cruising down the straight-aways or flying through the turns. Skaters love the physical exhilaration and the emotions of the skating experience or just having a forum for plainly showing off. All forms of skating have the elements of a sport, fun, skill, and a small element of danger."
This volume includes a slice of skating history that takes readers through a virtual trip to the rink for another enjoyable moment of fun, romance, and anticipation of things hoped for. Such a very personal and nuanced collection of thoughts is made possible in collaboration with self-publishing pioneer Xlibris.
