Starfish: Inspirational

I am indebted to my dearest friend Apela for sharing this with me last night.  Lifts my spirits immensely.

Starfish, by Eleanor Lerman

This is what life does. It lets you walk up to
the store to buy breakfast and the paper, on a
stiff knee. It lets you choose the way you have
your eggs, your coffee. Then it sits a fisherman
down beside you at the counter who says, Last night
the channel was full of starfish. And you wonder,
is this a message, finally, or just another day?

Life lets you take the dog for a walk down to the
pond, where whole generations of biological
processes are boiling beneath the mud. Reeds
speak to you of the natural world: they whisper,
they sing. And herons pass by. Are you old
enough to appreciate the moment? Too old?
There is movement beneath the water, but it
may be nothing. There may be nothing going on.

And then life suggests that you remember the
years you ran around, the years you developed
a shocking lifestyle, advocated careless abandon,
owned a chilly heart. Upon reflection, you are
genuinely surprised to find how quiet you have
become. And then life lets you go home to think
about all this. Which you do, for quite a long time.

Later, you wake up beside your old love, the one
who never had any conditions, the one who waited
you out. This is life’s way of letting you know that
you are lucky. (It won’t give you smart or brave,
so you’ll have to settle for lucky.) Because you were born at a good time. Because you were able to listen when people spoke to you. Because you
stopped when you should have started again.

So life lets you have a sandwich, and pie for your
late night dessert. (Pie for the dog, as well.) And
then life sends you back to bed, to dreamland,
while outside, the starfish drift through the channel,
with smiles on their starry faces as they head
out to deep water, to the far and boundless sea.

Golf Tip: Lighten Up on That Grip

20080724-165954-pic-935069425_5692971_ver1.0_640_480

I was profiled in the Kitsap Sun, in the summer of 2008:

‘Golf Tip: Lighten Up on That Grip’

‘People hold on to the golf club way too tight, especially men. Men are used to doing stuff with strength, and hitting a golf ball doesn’t take strength.

‘Go ahead, squeeze the club as tight as you can. For two or three counts, squeeze it, squeeze it, squeeze it and release it. Tap your club and swing it. You’ll be glad not to hold tight after squeezing the daylights out of it. Article continues here.

‘He was burned out. That was the rumor about 22-year-old Jordan Spieth, who went 1-1-4-T2 at the four majors this year, before missing two cuts to start everyone’s least favorite sports playoff, The FedEx Cup.

‘But despite that slow start, Spieth roared back with a T13 last week and then a win in the year’s final event — The Tour Championship that helped him set a single-season money record, among other marks.

‘Here are some fabulous facts about Spieth’s historic 2015, which started out with him as a young up-and-comer with no majors and finished with him as the undisputed greatest player in the world having one of the best seasons golf has ever seen.’

Article, continues here.
