I will not give up/
no matter how many times/
I may hit the ground/

For those that have been following the journey you know that i have been taking my son to the skating rink. He wanted to learn how to skate. The first time he went he continuously fell, but with encouragement he continued to challenge himself. I did a blog on that experience because he motivated me in my pursuits with his focus and fearlessness in confronting the things that came with falling. this helped me bring many of the things that seemed to plague me on my journey. It was not the falling that I feared it was the embarrassment of the the fall that bothered me. My son taught me through his experience to focus on my feed back rather than others personal views about what I was doing. Like skating life is a process of controlled falling. You are eventually going to hit the floor, but the more you practice the longer you can stay up and keep moving. Sometimes you can become so good that you can determine where the fall will happen so that you can get up dust yourself off and hit the rink floor again. So I hope that my sons little odyssey can motivate you by seeing the progress that he has made between the age of 5 and 6. Although life and other involved in it may try to dampen your dreams continue on your path and you will make it . Be persistence like little Cleve and you to will be skating through your journey like he was at the skating rink.
