spent time watching Track and Field this weekend and it brought back memories of time with my dad…

he was an excellent athlete in his youth and we often attended track meets at the old Arena to watch and enjoy the skill of those participating…

for much of my life he was ill and unable to do most physical things, but in my early teens we had fun watching other athletes…

he was the one who taught me to appreciate every person’s performance… it didn’t matter who they were, a good performance was always applauded…

I wonder if it was partly due to the fact that he appreciated anyone who could still perform…

he was the same with people… every single person he met had great value…

some precious lessons…
