Measuring Time with your Eyes Shut

Takes you back into memories

Who you knew and why you knew them

Important people

Real Events

When you felt connected to something beautiful and harsh

The baseball diamond in the late summer afternoon

batting practice

with the big man 

Coach Alf

Pitching

with laughter

How does a man do that?

Be the center of the universe

for a group of boys

who will never forget

what he said

“You win when you have fun!”

unforgotten words

repeated

time and again

And destined to be said

when his boys became 

men.
