Would you like to go dancing with me?

Posted on Sun, Apr 21, 2013 at 5:19 PM

This love is dancing in the wind like a major league knuckle ball. A very special kind of pitch where the pitcher leaves the path of the ball up to the elements. It travels much slower than a regular picture and the thrower surrenders his control of the ball to wind speed, air temperature, and chance. It requires patience, discipline, and letting go of what might happen. I'll admit that I have not been very confident in my ability to work with the knuckle ball and all that tension I put on myself made it hard to relax. But a good “knuckler” knows to relax. I’m on the 60-day disabled list with a dislocated shoulder, but I am ready play ball with you. I love our knuckle ball and I love you.
