365 Days of photos – Day 364

In April 2000 a tornado hit downtown Fort Worth and the near west side of downtown.

These four metal beams were once supports for a billboard. But Mother Nature bent them useless.DSC_0251

Instead of tearing them down, it was decided to include them in the design of a new post office.DSC_0265

I really like the connection of the bent steel and the mail carrier motto….”Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stay thecourier from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

365 Days of Photos – Day 363

On December 27, 2015 Meadowlark Lemon died. If you don’t know the name Meadowlark Lemon please follow this link and read about his amazing career and legacy as one of the most famous basketball players ever.

I admired Meadowlark Lemon as a child. I loved basketball and spent many hours shooting baskets in my driveway and trying to emulate Meadowlark Lemon. I practiced dribbling the basketball between my legs, I learned to spin the ball on my finger and I dreamed of shooting the perfect hook shot. IMG_9716

This morning after my workout I noticed the gym was void of the many children that typically run around shooting hoops. I decided to take advantage of the moment and spent time running up and down the court shooting baskets.IMG_9718

During my time on the court I entertained memories of playing in my childhood driveway and the many things I learned from coaches throughout my childhood. It was a workout with physical benefits and emotional benefits.
