prep is good. eye opening. lovely.
i sat by the track and observed 3 journeys in progress. it was quite fascinating to see how differently life plays out based on our varying needs:
the barely 2 feet tall toddler is a soccer start in training. his dad must be patient and kick that ball around till the cows come home.
a young man receives martial arts instruction from a big brother figure. the big brother must be patient with each steady, deliberate movement.
a group of 50-odd high schoolers move about the field as they play Stevie Wonder’s “Sir Duke” under the patient orders of their director. her tone is kind but she’ll repeat segment one as often as necessary.
we’re each on a journey. hopefully we’re following the lead of someone who’s patient.
