Really. What was you first thought?
Was it aversion?
What we see is a mirror of what and who we are or have been.
I’ll share what my first thought.
It’s actually the memory of hell week when I pledged the Phi Delta Theta fraternity in college. As pledges, we had a race through mud pits and puddles on the final day of the week.
In the final lap of the race there stood the largest puddle of mud, right before the finish line.
I took a dive, a la Pete Rose into third base. The splash was glorious.
In this picture, I see someone who got the wind knocked out of him while doing his best, with moments of fun and glory along the way.
What do you see?
