*Blogger formerly known as noontide
I find meaning, in this meandering life of mine, by finding things to care about. Finding things that arise passion and deliver me into the now. For whatever reason sports has always done this. Playing or watching, it is easy for me to get lost in the black and white boundaries of the action.

I want to root for athletes that care more than I do—teams that play together. Where their sum is greater than the parts. Enjoyment comes from success and success is measured by expectations.

On this note, let me leave you with a quote from the Bard, "If all the year were playing holiday to sport would be as tedious as to work, but when they seldom come they wish for come.... Nothing pleaseth but the rare accident" W.S.
