a pal’s wisdom

Grounders are rough. They move fast and they can break your nose if you let them have their way with you. A good fielder doesn’t let this happen because a good fielder has soft hands. They gently scoop in the wild turkey and coddle it until they get that punk out sneaking onto third (obviously I am not a sports writer).

I ran into a dear friend last night and told her about some cool things happening in my world. After a bit of rapport, she reminded me to have soft hands. No matter how good or how bad things turn out, remember to be flexible and have soft hands. Thanks, Amy.
