11. Poetry and Life

Driving on Washington Road here in Augusta yesterday I was listening to a live radio broadcast of the action at The Masters Golf Tournament. For those of you who’ve been to the tournament, you will remember that the Augusta National Golf Club is located on that same road, Washington Rd. In the car I thought of how unlikely it was that located just off of this busy thoroughfare would be the site of America’s golf capital – the place where legends like Jones, Hogan, Snead, Palmer, Player and Nicklaus captured the attention and won the hearts of fans throughout the world.


It was there yesterday, just beyond the trees, that three-time Masters champion Tiger Woods would amazingly win his fourth “green jacket.” “How awesome and yet so common,” I thought, “that something so big could happen just beyond the trees.”


Day 11 Guide


Today, consider that some of the most profound and important events may be unfolding nearby – just beyond the trees. Don’t let your mind be restless; but think today of how to connect with and enjoy the wonderful things happening within your reach.
