"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Play Ball!

Ah, Easter, Sunshine, Springtime.....for me, it's a happy time because it's Baseball Season! I am a new friend to most of you and I am sure after reading my first posts, looking at my photo and my colour choices, you think of me as a "Girlie-Girl".... well, you are partly right....but, I have one passionate, all-consuming sport interest.... Baseball! Love it - love the grace - love the mental challenge (it's a lot like Chess)...
"MY" team, the Atlanta Braves (too long a story to explain why a SF girl follows an Atlanta Team ..but I do and have done for 20 years),
opened their season yesterday with a victory...so, although I have been recovering from a severe case of food poisoning, it was a treat and made me feel better.
Only 161 games to go before Playoffs! Go Braves!
Just had to share my passion (the non-operatic one)!

  1. i like to think i am kind of an expert on baseball, though i haven't followed my red sox for several seasons now.

    i think baseball is very spiritual. and i like that you get a clean shot every pitch....


  2. Darling KJ, you are AMAZING! I didn't expect any comments on my baseball post - I just did it to make me feel good..but, how wonderful you like and UNDERSTAND the "spirituality" of the game! The Red Sox are my AL Team, while the Braves are my NL Team.... C, my ex is a Yankees Fan - and I was THRILLED to see the Sox come from behind the other day and beat those Slimey "Pinstrippers"!

    Glad we can share.

  3. Count me in too Robin!! I'm a huge Red Sox fan and I also enjoyed them beating the pinstripes off the Yanks on opening night!
    One time while we were still in CA I was hired for an innkeepers job part time. I said I couldn't start until the world series was over because this was the year they were going to break the curse...and it was! I was glued to the tv every single game ;)

    Go girls who love sports!

  4. although i have never been much a a baseball watcher (i would vote for the Yankee's though, being a Connecticut gal) old pajamas plays on the Oldtimers softball team on Cape Cod. I spent several years attending his games and came to love softball at least. We also have The Cape Cod League in the summer which has collage students on it, many of whom go on to the "big time." I saw one of those games but it all seemed so fast and hard to me. Whereas Oldtimers was just plain fun.
