Introduction to the Frisbee


This particular memory still lingers very much in my mind. I still remember the very first day when my parents took me to the park to play Frisbee. This after I had just gained sight after my first cornea transplant. It was a gorgeous spring day in Montreal as we ventured to the lush green park to try out my new Frisbee.

It was a bright orange and my parents were just as anxious as me. At first, they tossed it gently to me and watched intently as I caught it and then tossed it back to them. I truly enjoyed this experience. Watching the flight of the Frisbee as it left my hand and sailed noiselessly and quickly towards my parents. I was so excited to be able to see it all and both of my parents seemed just as excited.

The afternoon was a gorgeous one! The sun was just right, the grass nice and lush, and there were others around us also enjoying their activities.

I continued to play Frisbee after this first experience and thoroughly enjoyed it all. I still have this Frisbee after all of these years and shall forever hold on to it. Sometimes I take it out of its hiding place and toss it gently into the air and now that I no longer have the vision to play with others, I play by myself.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day.Visit my online store at www.donnajodhan.com/store.html.
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
