I remember when I was about 10 or 11 years old 'trying out'
for 'little league' baseball. I went with a few friends to the local
ball field and we did what we were asked to do to show our skills.
Some 'made the team', some didn't. I was one that didn't.
I learned a lesson that day.
And that lesson was that no matter how much in control of life
we feel we are, it will throw us a number of 'curve balls'
that we were just not expecting.
Winter at the boardwalk last week.
At first I couldn't 'catch' those curve balls due to lack of experience.
But life has its ways of teaching us to become masters of this art
