No matter how old you are, you can always start something new. Whether it’s learning how to draw, to play cribbage, or to cook a souffle. If you’re willing. Learning and being pliable are two of the things that keep us young.
My summer started with a friend inviting me to join his senior summer bowling league. Once I got passed that ‘senior’, I said why not.
Back in junior high school (over 40 years ago), I bowled on a local rec league. My greatest memories were accidentally wearing the lane’s bowling shoes to a school Christmas party (Red and gray striped shoes go with anything, right?) and having my elbow burned by a cigarette. Not the high points of my life.
We have all been captured by the power of words. Whether it was a line from a summer song, a love poem from a not-so-secret admirer, or a campfire tale that made your skin tingle; we well save been captured in the grip of used words.
