This picture is a representation of an athlete that has spent years perfecting his body’s ability to function to a rhythm. And as composed as he is, he’s progressing to his own cycle of what-to-do-next, reinforced by many hours of “let’s start at the beginning” and then go from there.
What’s missing here is the countless little struggles along the way where he wasn’t so composed, in step, functionally professional. I’m sure he has a mental scrapbook of not-so-nice pictures and shaking his head trying to figure out what’s-what!
We all have a “given” that says what we can and can not do. Patience and a willingness to sacrifice what others take for granted, is how someday, someone grabs a camera, then POOF … there you are on a web site, and someone asks … “ does anybody remember that picture of that pitcher “, so then we’ll be talking about you.
Do your utmost to use what gifts you have. Someday in the autumn of your years, you too can have a mental scrapbook that settles in just right with a hot cup of coco, your favorite easy chair, and watching your grand kids help the Mrs with Thanksgiving.
