March has never been my best month and so far this one ain’t been great. Emotions were way up following the cataract surgery. Emotions have been way down since my ability to think is moving at glacial speed. At the moment I feel on the periphery of everything; I want to get into the center but the center feels cold and inhospitable.

Maybe it’s the weather. It’s -7 degrees at the moment here in East Montpelier with a projected high today of 8.

So I just googled the Oriole’s Manny Machado to see if he could give me a jolt in the right direction – and he did. Playing shortstop for the Dominica Republic team in the World Baseball Classic a day ago he pulled off this amazing catch. To react instinctively with such a positive outcome – I’m want to take a lesson from Manny.
