"It's The Sporting Life For Me!"
It's just as well anyway, because you can see, by my header picture, what's on my mind already!! ^_^ TENNIS!!! This picture is of a local court here in Holyoke. All of the courts are kind of empty now that getting back to school is on everybody's mind. But, even so, I got hubby to take a few pictures to show that I'm not the only sports minded person around my town. (Although, I'm probably up there on the list...especially for a 50 something year old woman!)
Before I show you the rest of my pictures though, let me just say that I know I talk about sports a lot. So much so that you probably think I'm some kind of obsessed nut! (The people who follow me on Twitter especially must think that, because I tweet while I'm watching the matches, or games, depending on what I'm watching at the time, as if they're in the room with me!!) But the truth is, I'm a nut,...but a controlled nut!
I'm up very early in the morning, like around 2:30 or 3:00, and I do a lot of my studying in preparation for my meetings at the Kingdom Hall (my place of worship), read, get errands done, pay bills, do my blog, etc...all so that when it's time for my tennis matches, around 11:00 or so most days, I can just sit, tweet, and holler at the T.V... without distraction! Contrary to popular belief, I have a very full life aside from sports. But sports just makes me happy! Very happy!! Come tweet with me sometime during a match and see for yourself! :-)
Okay, let me show you some of the sports venues around our town. Of course you know we have tennis courts!! ^_^ But we also have track fields...
I know there's other things in life to be doing on any given day, and depending on what time of day it is I'll be doing some of those OTHER things! But if it's between 11:00 and...who knows what time!...during the 2 weeks of the U.S. Open...I'll be watching tennis! I haven't even crocheted anything substantial for at least a week and a half now!! I'll get back to it...for sure! But right now, I'm a little distracted. Good thing hubby understands my sports thing. By the way, he's been missing too! I'm sure he'll turn up around here sometime...it'll probably be around the beginning of next week! Ha! Ha! Ha! I'm sure of it because even I need..
There is a need inside of us
To just connect with someone else;
To look at them and somehow know
that who they are, can help you grow;
That if you just could somehow feel
the way down deep, that makes them real,
Your words will, then, no longer hide
the 'who' you are-the you inside;
And then, if you should laugh or cry
or lean your head, and give a sigh;
And if they mimic back to you
the same reactions that you do,
Then there's a real connection made,
and all your inhibitions fade.
All the walls that you put high
will fall away-into their eye,
Where you can look and see intense
emotion-and their innocense;
And you no longer must explain
the need inside, you now must claim;
The need to be the 'who' you are.
They've taken stock-and raised the bar.
Now-if you touch, or if you don't,
or if you will, or if you won't;
It doesn't matter-not a one,
the things they think, or what they've done;
Because connection has been made-
the needed, real, foundation's laid.
Now-there's a real relationship
that you give action-not just lip!
Enjoy the rest of your day everyone!!..."LOVE!"
