Baseball: Swing for the fences
Baseball, you say?
Well, here we are a team of 9, in the 9th inning, ending this cycle of our challenges to each other.
Baseball began in the United States before the 1840’s and by the 1880’s was beginning to be played in many other countries. Today it is played internationally, is an Olympic sport and every summer draws youngsters from around the world to baseball’s Little League World Series in Williamsport PA.
I think the metaphor “plays well with one’s team” describes each of us. Further, each of our cycles has a pitcher, a team that alternately goes to bat, and a really fine Player/Manager/Coach in Martha Wolfe.
I challenge you to playfully go to bat. Bases are loaded and you’ve got nothing to loose and everything to win. Swing for the fences, my friends, and PLAY.
