Gutter Ball

Why did I go bowling tonight? I’m not sure. Does anybody really know WHY they go bowling? No. That is precisely why bowling is sacred. It is an event without meaning, without agenda, without possibilities. What is the best thing that can happen to you in a bowling alley? What is the worst thing that can happen to you in a bowling alley? Exactly. It is a microcosm of your life, your thoughts, your dreams. The ball is your intention. The pins are your considerations. The lane is your path. The gutter is the gutter. And there is your ball, in the gutter. And there is your ball, slamming a strike. And the ball is returned, and the scoreboard is adjusted, and then the game is over.
