Throwing My Loop 10,000 Hours! BY MICHAEL JOHNSON DID YOU EVER know what we might call a “natural?” We all have. We’ve all seen the high school kid who could throw a baseball 90 miles an hour. I remember a left-handed sophomore who could throw the football 70 yards on a rope. Watching him throw that ball on a string, the only visual after-image left in my brain was my momma’s clothesline. And then there was that 14-year-old fiddle player in that beer joint, playing behind a wire cage. I never will forget him. He not only made all those redneck beer drinkers stand still and listen when he played; he made the angels weep. No training necessary, these were people who could do it from day one. I went to school with some of them – those who made straight A’s and never cracked a book. We’ve all known naturals, right? If only we had been born with their skill, their talent, their hand-eye coordination, or their IQ, then life would have made a lot more sense. Things would have been a lot easier. 44 • Second Quarter 2009
