Sometimes you find it in your experience, your senses – the cool ocean breeze, the taste of the wine on your palate, the hymnal, the sounds of the bustling city or swoosh of the snow under your skis.
So, 4 days before the final, I bought a plane ticket and a seat to the US Open. I debated only an hour or so. I shouldn’t spend the money, I shouldn’t take the time away from all my duties, shouldn’t shouldn’t shouldn’t. But I did.
