Reflecting on the Great One

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:25 pm

Today is Wayne Gretsky’s 50th birthday. For most of my adult life it was hard to think about hockey without thinking about Wayne. Folks of my parents age refer to Gordie Howe as Mr. Hockey – Maybe if that name was not taken it would belong to Wayne, instead he was dubbed the great one.  As a flames fan it was always hard to watch the guy. But you cannot argue with his list of accomplishments.  Despite retiring over 10 years ago, Wayne still holds or shares over 61 NHL records. Several of which I think will stand for many years. Despite being at the top of his game – and in a league of his own Wayne was always looking to improve himself, and was often his own biggest critic. It was reported that he was disgusted with himself at the end of the 1981-82 hockey season for only scoring 92 goals – as he felt 100 was possible.

This week has been about being my own critic, – having a good honest look  through my past photos. I sure hope I have not had my shot at 92 goal season. Like Wayne I have been setting goals for myself for the year.  I have finally decided that it  is time to start my looking glass  project.  If anyone is interested in helping out with some concept art photos – send me an email.
