Joshua taught me a few good things,
after telling me he didn't know which
ceremony the Bluejay feather might
used for. He said things like this:
"I hit my groove,"
while making eight or nine
shots on the
"I watch my brother, Shoshane,
play, and learn how to do what he can
"I try to improve by beating
my own record when I play
and practice basketball."
The smile on his handsome face
told me that he knows how to
enjoy something he loves to do
and is becoming
very good at.
Just the smile by itself healed me.
