October pretty much kicked off the start of competitive sports sectional, bands competitions and spelling bowls. The whole month felt like it had this intense charge. Before game rituals were taken very seriously and the whole energy surrounding the field of play was elevated. I can tell not just by the emotions of the athletes, musicians and students but how I feel. Each time I surprise myself with how nervous I get watching the clock tick down and the stillness the comes over the crowd. This was October for me. Thanks for looking.
