How Seasons Change

What do you call
the moment when
you notice all
pro players then
could well have been
your own children
to gauge their age

  1. That moment is called luck. Because despite all the things that could have killed you in those years when they were growing up and becoming pro-players…, you’re still here. 😄

  2. Most of my kids would be older than most sports figures; the ones in their 40s.and one 30 year old. Once when my youngest was in second grade (decades ago!) I volunteered to help kids in the class write stories. My daughter had told the class that her grandmother was visiting. So when I met with a little girl to write, she asked, “Are you Savanna’s mother or grandmother?” I was probably early 40s then and shocked I said, “Well, what do you think?” Dumb question to ask a 7 year old. She said without hesitation, “Her grandmother.” Love this h’sonnet, Stephen.

    1. Ha! Thanks! From a work perspective it was when one of the other leads hired a new employee and I realized he WAS my oldest daughter’s age, followed harder a couple years later when one my youngest daughter’s age started. 😁 From a sport perspective it was when I was taking with someone about how a player was getting too old and had lost a step, then realizing how old they were.
