for the concept of a long, slow recovery
that the principles I am learning to practice in recovery apply to life. All of it.
today is the end of the season and the end of a 51-year era for my beloved Houston Astros. I've been an avid fan for most of those years, certainly since 1967. This was their worst-ever season and next year they move to the American League. They will be changing their look and logo and uniforms. They are a young team in the middle of rebuilding. They will have a new manager who has yet to manage in the big leagues. But I tell you this from the bottom of my heart -- they're my team -- no matter what.
