Mulligan [muhl-i-guhn]

A mulligan, in a game, happens when a player gets a second chance to perform a certain move or action. The practice is also sometimes referred to as a “do-over.” – Wikipedia

A mulligan is a new chance that life will offer a person when they are willing to work hard enough to get it. A mulligan is not a right but a privilege. A mulligan is a gift in a person’s life. – lifewithoutbeergoggles.com

My friend Laura Martin – – read her blog, folks, it’s awesome – – told me in an email that I got a mulligan. I’ve had a week to ponder that, and I agree. As my sister-in-law Linda told me, “It wasn’t your time yet.”

So I got a mulligan. I’m not entirely sure why, or toward what purpose. But I know how I’m going to find out.

“Just busy yourself doing what you most want, among the choices now before you, and before long your life’s purpose will find you.” – Mike Dooley

Look around, you know
You must go for what you wanted
Look at all my friends who did
And got what they deserved

And there’s so much love to make up
Everywhere you turn
Love we have wasted on the way
So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Let the water come and carry us away – Graham Nash

Fog lifts to reveal potential
For generations prophesied
Our growth to be exponential
Our promise finally realized

I can see the earth below me
And I can
Feel it turn – Seán McCann
