“Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.”  -Chad Sugg

The season has ended.

We didn’t win.

Time to put away the balls and all the other equipment.

Time to reflect, to understand mistakes and hopefully fill holes in hope of a better future.

Love has faded, turned cold like the weather.

Try again in spring when hope springs eternal.

Try again.

And again.
