perspective.

and for the underdeveloped and unchallenged these kinds of things seem pretty rough. then i hear about the one-legged soccer player who gets out on the field and hop kicks a ton of ass out there on the field and LOVES IT. or the Iraq War vetran who has lost a leg and is out placing in the iron man. or my friend down the hall who is hobbling today, but most days is kicking my ass every day with unmatched class and generosity against a backdrop of a rich, tough layered history of challenges. and quietly reminds me. there are many depths to face head on with grace and fierce determination.

this makes it seven.
