The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
-Langston Hughes

This poem produces many reactions from me. I gather that, if one does not have any aspirations in life, then there is little purpose to it. I love Disc Golf more for the possibilty of a very bright future. I, like most people, started playing Disc Golf for the shear fun of the game. Soon thereafter my competitive fire for all sports was kindled.

The Dream of having a future Profession in Disc Golf soon drove me to every corner of the country. I would say I have traveled over 250,000 miles to play Disc Golf in my career. In that time I never wavered in my belief that I would play forever. I believe in the principals of Golf in general. The lessons it can teach one about Life. I have had many experiences on the course that have affected me in every day life. Golf is an individual sport in nature and a gentlemen's game. (sorry for the appropriate wording ladies) It's competition on a playing field between players and equal obstacles. Every hole is started at the same point with the same challenges laid out before you. The players individual technique and skills will then determine where they land and how well they shoot. Two players can play completely contrasting styles of play, but shoot the exact same scores. It has a real sense of competition between the Individual, Nature, and your Opponent.

With a new President and some change in the fundamental thinking here in America... Who knows what will happen? I for one am going to keep teeing off and try to enjoy the ride, Peace

So, why haven't we talked sooner?

I think I could have wonderful conversations with you.

I enjoy Langston Hughes and works that urge people to consider life in hands with laughter and simplicity. I'm not a big tournament player for that reason. I'm out there to have fun and watch my disc flyyyy, not to be the best player in the world and make a living out of it. I could never see myself making a living without making a difference. ya dig?
