Wow.

I've been watching the opening ceremony for the Olympics for the last three hours and it's just stunning. Incredible coordination with thousands of people and mechanical devices and the effect is just stunning.

I was especially impressed with the girl who sang the Canadian national anthem at the beginning. She's just 16 - the same as me, and she sang literally for the world. She sang a difficult song perfectly, and didn't even look nervous. She even looked like she was smiling. As someone who had to work up the courage to appear onstage for 30 seconds in a school play and gets the shakes playing in jazz band, I am in awe of her calm.
