A tennis partnership and other twosomes

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at 3:12 pm

For my readers who don’t know me, I am also a tennis player – hard core, competitive, most of the time pretty good. Heck, I’m even ranked as a singles player nationally. But today, today I was wild – crazy – erratic – a poor excuse for a doubles partner. I have learned through living that you’re partnership is only as strong as the weaker partner, and today that certainly was me. If I had only failed myself, that would have been easier to swallow, but letting someone else down, now that’s something very different. So in thinking about my book, it occurred to me today on the court why Kathleen did what she did. She didn’t want to take someone else down with her. I understand, Kathleen, I really do.
