Thanks for reminder to stay present each moment and enjoy the gift of life. I'm so happy for you that opportunities have presented themselves in order for you to begin again!

Have emailed this post to the other Italian in town. He was playing golf on Sunday in a tournament at Rooster Run, when another player (in his early fifties) died of a heart attack on the 13th whole. How tragic, yet probably perfect in a way to go for an avid golfer. Fifties are way too soon, however, and this makes your post all the more poignant.

why the bottom of the ninth?

  • For as long as I can remember, I have always loved the game of baseball. Like life, it is a game that is measured in small moments, a single pitch, a missed sign, a sacrifice fly to right in the bottom of the ninth to score the winning run. Moments when things change, sometimes forever. The bottom of the ninth is about those moments.

heartstrings

  • "People will come, Ray... They'll walk out to the bleachers, and sit in shirt-sleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game, and it'll be as if they'd dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick, they'll have to brush them away from their faces. The one constant through all the years has been baseball. ... It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again. People will most definitely come." - Field of Dreams, 1989
