Example text

I lived for the contests, the races, the competitionsit consumed me. Granted, I was just a little kid, trying to make the little league team but I couldn't sleep the night before any competition, just lying there worrying about being beat. Being so narrowly focused, I gave very little energy to my studies in school. Today they would undoubtedly diagnose me as having an attention deficit disorderand probably give me pills to slow me down. I rarely even listened to the teachers, daydreaming instead about scoring touchdownspositive imaging before I even understood the concept.

But the real story is this: Why did Andy call in the first place? I was not his equal. I was a kid trying to make the team, and he was a ten-year veteran, five years older than I was. He was a legend in that arena; at a level I had not yet attained. And that dinner in Chicago was for legends. Age, time and experience can make a difference in a person's make-up. One can get caught in the hype, the self-importance, and become myopic. I know, I've been there. But as I have come to learn, that was not where Andy was.

It was some time before he taught us about the moss on the trees and the positioning of the late sun. To this day I am very good at finding my way in the wilderness. Finding my way in life has been complicated. Like his father, Dad believed his major family responsibility was to make money and keep his boys in line. I was spanked with a belt but rarely and only when I had done something very bad, like stealing some change off his dresser (to buy candy). My worst whipping came after I had confided to my mother that I hated my father (probably because he had forced me to eat my spinach the night before).
