March Madness is upon us. Two teams will be crowned national champions of men’s and women’s college basketball, respectively. Those teams will celebrate their ‘One shining moment’ by jumping across the court, high-fiving and hugging each other, lifting trophies and cutting down nets.
A national championship win is a huge moment for an athlete – one most athletes never experience – a moment they’ll talk about for the rest of their lives.
Anyone who played basketball, at any level, surely remembers the squeak of shoes on the hardwood, the way a whistle can cut through the buzz of crowd noise or the silence as a free throw goes up toward the net.
Yeah, most of us won’t ever have the kind of hardware that comes with a national championship, but any of us who played basketball carry the sights and sounds with us. They become a part of the fabric of our story.
Maybe you weren’t an athlete – maybe your auditory memories come from the years you spent bent over a piano. Maybe brushing your fingertips across the smooth ivory and black keys takes you back to your grandmother’s living room.
Maybe when you walk past a new breakfast spot on the Main Street in your town, you can still smell your mom’s kitchen on a Saturday morning as she rolled out a thick pad of biscuit dough.
Moments make a life, be they little or big.
