Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

A Tigress, Perhaps?

I am pretty fanatical about golf. For me, that is. Which means I play the game three days a week (most weeks) and think about it often and watch it on TV.

I am truly sorry I didn't take up the game until I was in my late 20's. I was exposed to it at a young age, around 7, (I lived just a mile or so away from the club in Bethpage) but it didn't interest me at the time. Someone tried to introduce me to the game when was at NTC (Naval Training Center) in San Diego but I wasn't interested then either.

I encouraged my grand-nephew Danny, when he was alive, to play. He had youth, some talent, and enthusiasm for the game. Youth is important. It is a difficult and complex game which needs years to understand.

Which brings me to a local prodigy, Kendal Griffin, who I have had the pleasure to meet and to play a couple of rounds with when she was 12. An amazing little girl with great talent and real love of the game. I quickly overcame the embarrassment of being out-driven and out-played by a 12-year-old and became a mild fan of her game.

Remember her name, you will be hearing much more about her in the years to come.
