Hello everyone!

Well summer is almost here, hope you all had a great winter season. I'm just keeping you posted on what is happening with me right now, since the season is pretty much over now. Well I've been attending a few shows lately, three so far. One in Quebec city, Aurora and just finished a Markham show this past weekend. I have a few more coming up and in may I'm heading to Korea for a big show.
As for programs it seems I will be getting two new programs. The short program didn't get the feedback we wanted from the judges unfortunately. We are still searching for a new long program piece, I haven't found exactly what I wanted. Other exciting news is that I have now started practicing my quad toe again and have been going very well. I've been landing them quarter turn cheated and I've just started again so its just a matter of time I hope to get it clean. Last of all, I would like to thank those who have made some donations to help me along the way. I always believe that the fans are just as important as a skaters pair of skates. A lot of athletes would not be where they are without supporters such as you. So thanks fans! And I will speak to you all soon. Take care and enjoy the spring season!

Hello!
Thanks for updating, Patrick. I’m so glad to hear that you’re doing well. The news that you’ll attend a big show in Korea sounds exciting! I wish I could go there. Have a nice time!
Well, I loved your short program; I think it was so dramatic, but I’m looking forward to the new one. I hope that you will find what you really want for your program and succeed in quad jump practice.

Glad to see you have fun. And soooo happy to hear that you finally come to Korea!!! Now I can see you in my own eyes.. Oh, I cannot believe it:)

I really liked your short program as well as the Vivaldi program. But it's really exciting to see a skater (especially whom I like much) trying various styles and showing great moves in every work he done- just like you showed in the last season. I really eager to see your new works. Hope to find the best music for long program, and also wish you good luck with your 4T practice.
Have a nice day. Bye!

It was really great to hear from you in Sweden that you're coming to Korea! All of your fans here are extremely thrilled to see you skate very soon.
Both of your programs were fantastic; they have very matured style and complex chreography(and superb execution of course!). Still, it's great for you to try new things, too. I'm so looking forward to see your new programs already. Oh and I really hope you will get the quad in the near future!

I went to the sunday's FOI show and Patrick, you were soooo fantastic!! You might be very tired because of the long flight, so I hope you take enough rest and good luck with your practice.

Dear Patrick's Fan//
Thanks cutie_panda for finding the vids. I couldn't make any homevids, but I posted some FOI photos on my blog, including Patrick's.

Thanks for the additional videos, cutie_panda! It looks like Patrick really enjoyed the event. :) So great that you went to support Patrick, vigiliae! Just wanted to share an interesting factoid... according to ice-dance.com, Patrick's "Yesterday" exhibition number is a tribute to his former coach Mr Colson.
