R. A. Dickey

A retreat

Sometimes an unexpected person enters a life. They may be a teacher, a person to guide us, a word of comfort when our vision is distorted.

With it 18 degrees outside baseball. Is far away, but I am reading R.A.Dickey's autobiography. His confrontation with himself is inspiring. From a career as a minor leaguer he wins the Cy Young award as the best picture in the National League in 2012. The secret? A knuckle ball, tons of practice, and people who believed in him.

It is easy to forget those who touched our life and gave us confidence in ourselves.

Two questions. Who are people who changed our lives and the second question is "whose lives are we changing because we believe in them?" You think about that!
