After a 18 month sabatical, I have started to play pool again. I began hitting balls 2 Sundays ago and felt like I wasnt missing much of my stroke, of course my eyes told a different story. For my 40th B-Day, the powers that be stripped me of my lazer-type vision and replaced it with what seems to be a form of "2nd Childhood eyes". I can laugh at this because it I'm not vain, I will wear glasses to read...I'm fortunate that it didnt affect my 9' vision.

I also noticed that I stand a little different, the muscle memory apparently forgot how I once stood and this new stance seems to benifit me. I noticed that I will not hit the ball harder than medium speed nor do I spin the rock as much either, I'm not sure if those are confidence matters or a maturity matters...more to come on that. I noticed that I blank out the music and the chatter easier than ever and my ability of thinking of nothing has really flurished.

Overall, it looks like my game may show its evil head once again...but better /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Glad to see you back, Voodoo. You have been missed.
