I was “en­joy­ing” some gen­tle lengths of the swim­ming pool along­side a man and his grand­son.

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Relax -

We hap­pened to stop at the shal­low end at the same time and I heard the boy – who looked about 10 – say: “Come on, grampa! That’s eight lengths done, only an­other 56 to go!”

And, with a splash, he was off.

Grampa sighed, but then he smiled and shook his head.

“Ex­pe­ri­ence tells me I won’t make it,” he told me.

“But his en­thu­si­asm tells me that I just might.”

And off he went, in pur­suit.

Ex­pe­ri­ence. En­thu­si­asm. Each on their own has value, but the com­bi­na­tion… well… they just might take you fur­ther than you ever thought you could go!
