Well, it’s World Series Game No. **SEVEN** day ;oD
So that’s super exciting, but I also have to be HONEST—I did, as it happened, experience another bought of turbulence, last night. Something about the cumulonimbo cloud coverage I think, but fear NOT—I’ve already, worked **through** it:
And then, in closing, I just want to add a lit-tle quote from a book I read back in August 2014—by Malcolm Gladwell, entitled David & Goliath, Chapter Five, Section 7, offered within the context of the American civil rights movement on the day after Christmas in 1956, regarding Fred Shuttlesworth—the black Baptist preacher who was one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s most important allies in Birmingham:
Shuttlesworth must have been someone of great resolve and strength. But when he climbed out of the wreckage of his house, he added an extra layer of psychological armor. We are all of us not merely liable to fear, we are also prone to be afraid of being afraid, and the conquering of fear produces exhilaration…The contrast between the previous apprehension and the present relief and feeling of security promotes a self-confidence that is the very father and mother of courage.
And then what happened at Phillips High School? Another remote miss! Upon leaving the hospital, Shuttlesworth told reporters, “Today is the second time within a year that a miracle has spared my life.” If one remote miss brings exhilaration, we can only imagine what two bring.
To the Moon and back,
All my love,
