ROOT: Details like the ocean tides

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — A simple wave rolling in over the rocks is significant because we don’t get the chance to see ocean waves every day. Maybe she has been trying to teach me about the details in life all along and I never really paid attention. How ironic is that?

I still have a ton of things I need to do to start achieving my professional goals for the next few years. I have stories to write and products to sell. But I get it now about the importance of the details in life.

As I get older, it becomes even more important that I not let the details slip by me. I am not going to get many more chances to transition to a next phase in my life, so I better pay closer attention to my wife and make sure that I savor the details along with conquering the big picture challenges. In the end, it is all an important part of our life together and the future of our growing family.

George N Root III is a Lockport resident and budding expert on ocean tides. His column appears every Wednesday and has been lacking in detail for some time. He can be reached at georgeroot@verizon.net. Just leave a message and he will get back to you when he can.
