Those of us who watched Yogi Berra, as we grew up, were amazed at the attributes of this “New World” Zen Master’s ability to “chop wood and carry water”. He would always show up and be the best he could be … always being present in the moment.
He got it, and he was able to show others the “it” factor, by his example. I was always amazed, when I was able to go to the Yankees games in New York and watch this man play … trying to be like him. I didn’t get it until I was years older, but it did happen.
Thanks Yogi, for showing us the way in life, in whatever we do, and being the example you were to so many of us … we will never forget you.
