When I read the title and looked at the image, it reminded me of the Satchel Paige quote: “Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching.”

When we live life to the fullest, we can find so much without looking for it. It finds us. When we remaind mindful, life and alls its manifestations show themselves to us.

I am a retired educator who recently completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. My dissertation topic and research was how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. And for those who feel shy, there’s an African saying: ‘if you can talk you can sing; if you can walk you can dance’.

  3. For Satchel Page to still have this open heart after a lifetime of discrimination is incredible. Maybe the greatest pitcher to ever live, robbed of his chance to compete in the big leagues because of his skin color.

    The human spirit is incredible

    • He was not a young man when we broke into the major leagues and yet proved to be an incredible pitcher all the same. You are so right, “the human spirit is incredible.”

      • In the locker room at Miami stadium, a picture of Satchel hung on the wall. He was sitting down at his locker, shirtless, looking like he was sixty.

        Jackie Robertson was selected to be the first black major leaguer for his temperament not because he was the best.

        Satchel and Josh Gibson would have been chosen.

      • I used to tell my students that Jackie Robinson had the right temperment. He also played in Montreal at the AAA level and was loved there.
