A while back I posted on the negative quality of most news sources today (which, in retrospect, constituted a pretty negative view in itself).
Well not so today!
Did you read, or see on TV, the wonderfully good-certainly-does-abound story about twenty-one year old college star athlete Cameron Lyle? Completing his senior year at the University of New Hampshire and his final season on the track and field team as a stellar shot putter, Cameron is giving up the last part of his athletic career in order to donate bone marrow to a young man in desperate need of it–and whose only match right now is … Cameron.
Here’s a link to the cool story: http://www.today.com/health/i-never-had-second-thought-college-athlete-cuts-career-short-6C9670404#i-never-had-second-thought-college-athlete-cuts-career-short-6C9670404
See? There ARE real heroes. Real Iron Men.
Good comes forth when we play our cards right.
Saturday morning I stumbled out of bed (you would think someone my age could deal with morning a bit better) and walked a few blocks to Savannah’s Forsyth Park to get some fresh vegetables. (It’s spring, so I’m on my Annual Quest to get in Stellar Shape for the maybe two times I go to Tybee Island and the beach during the summer. I haven’t seen abs in forty years, but I’m such an optimist I AM NOT GIVING UP. Do you hear me?! I intend to be on the cover of Men’s Fitness one day.)
The Forsyth Farmers’ Market is the coolest gathering of local vendors offering fresh–often organic–fruits and vegetables, along with coffees, breads, honey, jams, juices, pasta, fish, beef, poultry, herbs, flowers, etc. I LOVE their statement of purpose: “The mission of the Forsyth Farmers’ Market is to promote understanding and participation in a local food system that supports sustainable production and increases access to local products.”
Coolest dog at the market:
Coolest shoes at the market:
What joyful shopping!
