Hope Springs Eternal


Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

“The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again.”
James Earl Jones from Field of Dreams

Spring training is here!

    Hi Larry, “Field of Dreams” is one of my favorite movies….you reminded me of this, and so now I plan to show it to my Film class at the high school. Why not?

    I love that film too Pat.

    Baseball is a great escape from the realities of tough times and spring is the time for new beginnings where everyone starts even and hope springs eternal.
