This book encourages us to stop and see the beauty right before us, the beauty in other people, in ourselves, in nature, and in God. It is a journal of E. C.'s thoughts, reflections, prayers, and desires as he goes about his life-going to church, visiting friends, working, teaching tennis, and playing tennis. This book includes a story about E. C. singing in his church choir. And there is a letter to a young person who is searching for his calling, searching to find his song . . . to find his unique swing. Also there is a story exploring the meaning of Christmas from a different angle. This book is an invitation for us all to stop and see the beauty and love that are right before us . . . to breathe in, to breathe out, to see that beauty and love right before us, which have been there all along.
E. C. has helped take care of tennis courts at a local Y.M.C.A, especially the green clay tennis courts. In the evenings, he teaches tennis in the park system. He teaches beginner students both children and adults. He also has enjoyed singing in the choir at his church.
