It puts you in competition with yourself. Perhaps all sports do, but golf is the only one I’ve played.

One memorable game took place on my birthday, and I made par for the first time in my life.

I needed to prepare for that contingency. I had deadlines to meet before my appointment.

Little spikes of anxiety fused with some lightheadedness, and I couldn’t tell if it was the vaccine or guilt or fear.

When my lack of stimulation drained my ability to create, it hit me like a Mack truck. Writing is my livelihood, my passion, my identity. To lose it is to lose my understanding of who I am.
