One of the AA messages I listened to was: You have to change playmates, playgrounds and playthings. One of the playthings I got involved with was Handball. This sport is an aerobic and addictive activity. This was a two decade addiction. Finally, my knees and shoulders gave out and I had to switch to inanimate equipment to keep active.
During my handball days, one of my regular playmates was a dude named Bruce Day. Bruce was a very good athlete, played NFL for a couple of years, and solid in the sports ethics behaviors. He was a pleasure to play with. Bruce’s spiritual program was praiseworthy and he had attitudes and behaviors that we should all emulate.
Bruce was also a cartoonist and illustrator. His efforts always included “life” details that were mind boggling. Even his satire efforts were done in a fashion that left me enjoying myself and not depressed. A recent review of his efforts left me with the feeling that our societies fractious behaviors need his wholesome input. The feeling I have when I look at his work = our current behaviors, perspectives and attitudes need help.
Copies of his work can be obtained if there is interest.
