|Passing of the unicorn to M Cowen|
My ostensible reason for writing this post has to do with the US Masters Swimming team I've been pleased to be a part of for the past the six years, the Chicago Smelts. Master's swimming is hardcore, competitive swimming for adults who like that sort of thing. Right. Maybe you're asking where I fit? I've devoted myself to working behind the scenes, not to competing. Like in my professional life, I make sh*t happen and I do it pretty darn well.
Warning: Somewhat emotive portion of this post- I've met some of 'my people' here. Really. The sort of friends that aren't temporal or limited in scope. They've welcomed me into their lives and vice versa. I'm better for it, and I hope they are too.
So it's time to pass along the unofficial 'mascot,' the unicorn.
A symbolic gesture, but not a hollow gesture. Tell me about a time you've passed your own 'unicorn'....
