Today was the first time mom watched me play basketball. Actually, two of ma’s sister’s and two cousins got the chance to watch me play.Unfortunately, they had the chance to be a brickmaster. I was happy to show off my new skills. I am still learning the game and finding that there are a tremendous amounts of the game I don’t know. I am finding the my new basketball is all about strategy and chair position. I in the past had my physical abilities could over come some deficiencies in my skills. That is no longer, I am trying hard to learn how to better use my chair to become a better basketball player.
The even better news is that my stamina has increased so much. A year ago I would play rugby and be down for the rest of the day. Instead, I found a cheap table for next to my bed. I went to the grocery store. I did, though drop a lap full of food in the hallway once I got back. Which, I do often. Later, I actually made my first meal for someone. Ma and her sisters came over for a meal. It wasn’t much, but it was something. We later play some game. It was a good day. I could never imagined that I could accomplish what I accomplished today. But, here I am two years later and I am making my move. Somedays, it really is surprising to me. I am me. I am strong. At the end of the night they all went home. And, of course, a red onion was found exactly where I dropped my stuff. So, other than the red onion it was a good god damn day.
