Humming Birds and Thunder Storms…we live for these rare and little things, these magical moments.

We live our lives and participate in such great historical events and even find ourselves, well, at least I do, on television and in the paper as a professional official.  And in so doing, I am constantly in the limelight, working a high pressure position and maintaining a high profile career.  And I love my position and I love the pressure and attention, as I work better under pressure and enjoy performing in front of crowds, even live, international crowds.

But there are also little things in my life that I love and that I live for:  These little things, these rare occurrences, these magical moments, including the thunder and lightning storm that happened the other house where I live in Seattle.  It was an amazing spectacle, a display of awesome power and the beauty of nature.  And later that week, as I sat outside on my deck enjoying the summer sun, a humming bird came by to enjoy the giant daisies in my garden.  These little moments, as well as the big moments, I both love and live for and relish.
