Hitting a Grand Slam

Every new spring brings the search for the picture perfect swing that knocks the ball out of the park. Every year baseball has been a big part of my life from coaching little league, softball, babe Ruth, to umpiring.  There always seems to be the search for the ideal symbol of  achievement.

The current search for beauty is having the prettiest landscape, beautiful gardens, a perfect lawn, a crystal clear pool, all ending with a grand sunset.  Often when solitude and peace are achieved, we are grateful.

As I ponder technology advances, new systems to implement, gaining a business advantage,  you realize: the most important technology is the one that brings us together. When it all come together and you hit the ball out of the park,  just enjoy the moment as the ball sails into the sunset!
