Who am I? I am a baseball nut. Paily fan. Iowegian farmer's daughter. Flaming liberal. Sunday school teacher. Writer. Pinterest rock star and Willy Wonka wannabe who likes girls. Yeah, that's pretty much it.
Baseball suits a character of this democratic nation. Democracy is government by persuasion. That means it requires patience. That means it involves a lot of compromise. Baseball is the game of the long season, where small, incremental differences decide who wins and who loses. In baseball, you know going to the ball park that you may win or you may lose. You know when a season starts that the best team will get beaten a third of the time, and the worst team is going to win a third of the time. It’s not a game you’ll enjoy if winning is everything. Democracy is that way too.

I’ll never understand why I do this, always setting myself up for heartbreak. It’s so predictable…I get attached way too early and things just fall apart leaving me devastated.
I try so hard to measure my emotions and pace myself but I still fall so hard, so fast. Why do I even let myself go there? It’s never done me any good. Not once.
Love comes to some people so easily. It doesn’t seem quite fair.
