I want to be a Hummingbird

Las Sendas Golf Club/18th Tee
I'm sitting here poolside packed and ready to head home after a relaxing few days in the valley of the sun.  The boys of spring are here and warmer temperatures are expected by weeks end.  Unfortunately we will miss most of it.  And wouldn't you know the day we leave it's supposed to be in the 80's.

Oh well.

Yesterday, I had a chance to play Las Sendas Golf Club with a business partner of mine.  It was a picture perfect day for golf, but not a pretty day with rental clubs.  However, I enjoyed the course and some of its panoramic views.

I also learned that I just don't have the passion for golf anymore.  Our passions often change.  It probably comes as no surprise to a few friends of mine, but it hit me like a ton of bricks.

What's great about trips like this is the opportunity to mix business with pleasure, and hopefully come home with enlightened spirit, new ideas, new goals, and new energy.  Sometimes we even learn we want to be something else in our next life.

I think I want to be a hummingbird.  I could buzz people, eat sugar water,  hang by the pool, and leave frustrations, stress, and worries behind.

That beats golf any day.

Boys of Spring

Sunshine!  It's been a long couple days of clouds and chilly weather.  Today is a different day.  Enjoying the morning by the pool and then off the M's-White Sox game at 1:10.

Jeff and I went out to practice this morning.   Up close and personal with the players.  Felix looking good.

What do I eat today at the game?

A.  Bratwurst
B.  Yakisoba noodles
C.  Hot Dog
D.  Beer
E.  All of the above
