ENJOY THE GIFTS
My partner Art and I were simply outplayed today. We
both struggled with control, but we forced a tie breaker in the second match. Still neither of us were satisfied with our play, but we came off the court winners anyway.
The temperature was in the 70's, the sky was blue, the surrounding highlands were green, a gentle breeze blew and a pal had come to watch and then join us for coffee at Lily's.
It doesn't get any better than that, even with a winning score.
It's a matter of perspective and as a boomer I still need to remind myself of that. The days of task orientation have been replaced by days like this and the score of a tennis match is secondary to being on the court, in the game and
engaged in a joyful celebration of right now.
THE RUTH CAMBRIA ROSE
Lana calls this Ruth Cambria Rose named
for our friend who gave us a clip of a
rose that grew on her fence.
This is a season for it.
A WORLD CLASS VIEW
We were fortunate this weekend to attend
a gathering on a coastal highland with
an extraordinary view. The view deserves
better optics than mine, but here's
a sample of California at its most magnificent.
See you down the trail.
