Lava Monster

Lava Monster is a game from my youth. Unlike Twister or Hopscotch, Lava Monster isn’t one of the games in my memory. It might be due to the game being more challenging. Lava Monster calls for a person to remained balanced on objects set on the floor. If your feet where to touch the floor … More Lava Monster

Another Half Second

Cerebral palsy has made balance more challenging. It seems positive to always look for ways to take on life’s challenges. Sometimes working on my disability can be done by working on thought process. Often one of the main components of exercise becomes the way we think about working on our bodies. It has taken time … More Another Half Second

Twister

Twister was another popular game during my youth. It asked for a person to place their hands and feet in different places on a mat. Each mat or twister board had colored circles in different positions. The game had a small board in which to spin an arrow, when the arrow stopped it would dictate … More Twister

Hopscotch

Hopscotch was a game I remember from school. During those days, it involved balance I didn’t have. The game requires balancing and jumping on one foot, then jumping onto two feet, and back to one foot again. It was a game in school that could only be watched. There were certain moments growing up, the … More Hopscotch

Dragon 5

There wasn’t any way to know if Anna would put Todd’s number to use. Though he felt like devising a plan in case any kind of message was to reach his phone. Something else floating into his thought was the likelihood of running into Anna again. The two seemed to run in the same circle … More Dragon 5

So, my … More Buffalo Peak

Mauna Lani #13

The South Course of Mauna Lani has some spectacular holes. I was fortunate to play the golf course a couple times during a February trip to Hawaii. With all of the great holes, thirteen might be my favorite. It had us playing directly toward the Pacific Ocean. Thirteen is a par-4 measuring about 321 yards … More Mauna Lani #13

The Hallmark 2

The drive down to Cannon Beach for an overnight stay had been good. Everything was taking place more positively than one might have thought. The couple stops along the way brightened the trip when getting coffee at Dutch Bros and picking up pizza at Fultanos. Checking into The Hallmark following the five-hour drive took place … More The Hallmark 2

Mauna Lani #7

The seventh hole at Mauna Lani is a par-3 moving slightly downhill. It was the first hole of the golf course played along the Pacific Ocean. The waves crashed into the rock behind me during my tee shot. The hole played about 109 yards from the forward tee box I was hitting from. Seven can … More Mauna Lani #7
