A BEAUTIFUL STRUGGLE

For humans only.  For peace of mind.

Wake-Up Call

But in the evening, after everything settled down, it did feel kind of hollow. Like basketball was missing a presence.

To Give and Receive

And I’m grateful to be given the opportunity to serve and “give back” to society thru this wonderful organization.

Saturdays

I’m sure we all have times like those. Those weekends where there is no particular plan to hang out. Just relax. That's okay.

I Don't Know

All that knowledge accumulated over the years. And yet, all of it is minuscule compared with the things in this world that I do not know.

A Grain of Salt

What works for me might not work for somebody else. And what works for somebody else might not work for me.

In Good Hands

I see so much effort and goodness. I see everyone contributing. And I can’t help but feel a sense of satisfaction. A sense of ease.

Pet Peeve

This annoying family of four seated right next to us were talking super loudly, and I had a hard time trying to block out all the commotion.

The Best Thing

Sometimes, going thru these episodes of "struggle" could be the best thing that has ever happened to you.

Dinomite

I’ve had other stuffed animals thrown my way, but they never came close to Dinomite.

The Game of Life

Success had been defined so clearly by the standards of society. I accepted it, I followed it, and it served me well. Until it didn't.

Until I Can't

Every single extra moment I have together with my family, my friends, my community, my country, my world, my universe - is an absolute gift.

Wrestling At Its Finest

Ladies and gentlemen, coming thru that door, weighing in at a healthy 140 lbs. and a serviceable 5 foot 7, Calvin "The Yes Man" CHUUUUUUUUU.

A Day To Remember

I took a look at my camera’s battery lights flickering, and quickly snapped a picture of the three minarets from the courtyard.

A Perilous Fall

I looked like a dead fish floating in the sky. And some people down below looked away in shame. I heard someone mutter "oh he's useless".

The Ideal

And I faked a smile to everyone. Pretending to be happy on the outside - but feeling utter misery on the inside. I was left out.

For Basketball

He took a couple of dribbles to his right, and launched a shot over my outstretched arms that hit nothing but the bottom of the net.

Curveball

He came straight up to my window. And his eyes were wide and glazed with anger. He was unaware of the saliva dripping down his mouth.

A Beautiful Struggle

It was disheartening and discouraging, because I was struggling so mightily in something that used to come so naturally to me.
