Library’s closed to COVID-19… and it’s late anyway..
Disappointed that my library did not have a history of books I checked out (except for late) — then glad because of privacy issues – I decided I’d go through the shelves online.
Hopefully I’ll recognize titles of books I’d picked up and read so I can add them to LibraryThing, now that they have free membership (which means unlimited entries).
Going through my (closed to COVID-19) library catalog to add books I’ve seen/read through the years, I came across this book from the 90s.
That title gains new meaning when talking about the spreading wave of a viral contagion. Yikes! “Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff: It’s All Small Stuff”.
Going through my library stacks tonight, I suddenly remembered THIS book. The Inner Game of Tennis.
Read it as a teenager. Got it a a garage sale. The book’s not about tennis. It’s about Western-style, simplified Buddhism. Call it “Peak Performance”. Staying Centered. The Zone. Tao. Balance. Dress it up, strip it down. It was helpful to me.,
Hold the ball like a living bird. You don’t want to grip it so tight that you crush it to death but you don’t want to hold it so loose that it flies out of your hand.
I remember that. It’s a good approach.
