Life

Take care of your cue ball and it will take care of you. 

Not just literally true but also a metaphor for life. What we shoot out to the world comes back at us in multiple ways. Ripples travel in all directions.

    1. Yes! I wasn't sure you'd see or recognize this. I'll never forget our fun time together during that trip.

  2. I've always been terrible at pool, I have absolutely no patience.

    1. It requires practice. And mental discipline. You need to approach it like a Zen activity.

  3. Let's shoot some pool! There is a great pool bar in the basement of my office building - next time you're out, we should go play!

    1. Yes! It's my favorite sport. I'm getting my own table when I buy a building.

  5. That is indeed so true. If you help others and you are kind, you do find it comes back to help you. I helped a work colleague proof read her reports last night and she said it taught her a lot (she's Zimbabwean and says she has a little difficulty with English grammar and phrasing at times). I said I'd help her out again tomorrow and when I felt sad earlier about all the cliquey people in my school and how all my friends have left, I realised actually, this lady I'm mentoring would be a lovely influence on my as a friend so perhaps that might be a positive potential.
    P.S. Pool is fun but I'm not very good at it!

    1. What a sweet story. I'm sure, with your kindness, there are many around you grateful for your presence.

  6. For several summers, I played at a community center that had pool tables. We always thought we were Very Cool and Grown Up playing, though we didn't know the rules in the slightest. -laughs!-

    Be the cue ball you want to see in the world? Lol!

  7. Wisely said, my dear friend. There is a great deal of truth to this metaphor, which calls to mind the concept of the Butterfly Effect - not mention Newton's Third Law.

    Fantastic action shot of you getting ready to break. I don't play billiards myself, but some of my family members (especially my mom) are excellent players, so I've been around the game for much of my life and have a real soft spot for it.
