All strategy. Anticipating and calculating. From the white board to the tennis court. Plays in a competitive league. Fences, too. Says it’s all one big game of chess. Planning and executing moves, taking direct routes to set goals. But knowing a good detour when you see one. Like California before college. Or restoring that old family house. And a dozen others. Learning every step of the way. Filling in the blanks with Kubrick, Dali and David Foster Wallace. Recognizing opportunity and seizing it. Knowing the way to win is to make every shot count.
