When Life and Inner Harmony  Intersect

Scoring well at golf is a combination of hard work, skill, experience and luck. Being successful at life and our relationships also requires work on behalf of all parties as well as some luck and the maturity to adapt to pitfalls and coming out on the other side with a better bond after working together.

My wife and I are going to celebrate a wedding anniversary in early November. Before we were married she understood that my weekend mornings were spent at the golf course with my teammates and we would plan our time together after noon. Even with the planning of our exchange of vows she wanted us to get married at night day to make it easier on our families and also knowing that I would spend the morning at the course.

Even Karma Will Give a Well Done Sign

Karma sent a sign that morning by bringing together the perfect elements and sending that golf ball into the hole with a single shot, a Hole in One.  It was the 14th hole, a 156 yard par 3 at Crestbrook Park in Watertown CT .

When I called her that morning to tell her what had happened she just offered that it was a sign of good things to come.
We got married that night, coincidently in Watertown less than a mile from the course in Nov 1994.



The following year I got another Hole in One on the same hole a month before our anniversary.
Four years later, late Nov 1999, within 2 weeks of our 5th anniversary I again hit a hole in one on that same hole.
In 2004, five years later and one month shy of the anniversary another hole in one, same hole. Karma liked the way we were  enjoying life together.
Naturally in 2009 in our 15th year of marriage I was expecting another ace, same hole, in the fall.

What I received instead was an eagle; 2 under par

on the 13th hole at Crestbrook Park, a 515 yard par 5. Again, some skill and luck with 2 good shots and the final shot a combination of ability and good fortune.  Business had been good, I was just discovering how to make ActiveRain work for me, as well as peace and harmony with my wife.

So as we enter our 20th anniversary year with business going  extremely well, and smooth sailing at home, it was only logical to expect good things on the course as well.

First Hole is a 376 yard uphill par 4. What better way to start the round and a match than with an eagle, 2 under par. This takes 2 good shots as well as the skill and of course the luck. Only the hole wasn’t to be won by my team as there were 2 balls in the hole when we approached the green, my competitor was having a lucky day as well.

My anniversary streak is still alive: we ying and yang very well at home; business has been very good with prospects positive for the foreseeable future. There is still a little more than a month before our anniversary and I still have hopes of getting that Ace yet, but if I don’t, the eagle will be just as good.
