    Skater talks about depression

    Even with depression, it sounds as if she's coping with it well, and in a good space.

    Thanks for the pix! I too wish we could see Sarah's, Johnny's AND Dorothy's performances.

    I was working at the event and missed most of the performances but I did see someone filming on the ice so hopefully there will be some DVD release in the future.

    While I have never been a fan of Peter Carruther's TV commentary, I was very impressed with his role as MC of the awards presentation at the dinner following the show - he did an amazing job!

    And here's Dorothy. She is as graceful as ever. (PML that it looks like she has her boots custom made in the old-school style that came up so high on the leg. But it clearly works for her.)

    I think that's Doug Wilson, the veteran director of ABC's figure skating TV broadcasts, now retired.

    My husband (of a little over a month) worked the event. He had never seen any "real" skating before and thought it was great. When he got the gig, he asked me who Sara Hughes, Johnny Weir, and Dick Button were and what Ice Theatre was. I clearly need to help up his skating IQ.

    I couldn't attend though because I was on work travel. This clearly did not amuse me.

    I think it's interesting that, out of all the photos, he and Dorothy--two fiftysomethings--looked the best IMO.
