My children's dreams

Childhood dreams

Ever since I can remember, I dreamed of becoming a hockey player. My heroes were "Rocket" Richard, Bobby Orr and Guy Lafleur. I had other dreams....to find a cure for cancer and to be in the encyclopedia Britannica. These were big dreams...bold and unconstrained.....possible impossibilities. I didn't make the NHL but I still play and now coach my son. I am still holding out for the possibility of a mention in Wikipedia someday.
