Sportsmanship

“Dust”

It’s time to get back to trying new activities and adventures. This week, it’s polo.

I was lucky enough to be able to recently attend two polo matches. The afternoon was sunny and hot, while a warm breeze played through the field and stands. A brief sun shower during the second game brought a little relief, more breezes, and grey skies.

The best part was watching the skill the riders exhibited and the athletic capability of the horses. I didn’t mind much about which team to root for: that team, this team, which team? No, it was all about the sport itself, the sportsmanship, and skills thereof.

With all the hubbub about the lack of sportsmanship of other athletes in different sports these days, it is uplifting to see again what was once known as respectable American sportsmanship.

It was class all the way.

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.
