Winter

Winter arrived sparkling white and brutal cold. It always surprises me when it comes. As though it had just left. Time does that to me. It moves so fast and whirls me around until I am back to where it all started. But one year older. A year wiser perhaps. Most certainly one year more aware of the unyielding passing of time…yet it seems to catch me off guard once again.

when football came into play.

I was not an athletic child. Let me rephrase that. I did walk a lot, performed the classic Jane Fonda thigh lifts and butt squeezes and even some old school sit ups on occasion, but I was not a sports player. Not by a long shot. The less "on a team" I could be, the better.… READ MORE
