Tender

"Steal the crown, and your ache will be tender

Settle down, when you're starring in your last role

And I have been around

And I will guide you down ..."

I've been watching the Australian Open finals this weekend; two wonderful match-ups that represented a really heart-stirring return of four epic champions, three of whom have seen their glory days quietly fade as the years march on. I felt awash with nostalgia, having found my love for watching the sport 12 years ago when they were all in their prime. Usually when tennis athletes are in their early 30s, they begin retiring and passing the torch to the next generation, so seeing these finalists who are all my age or older have such a brilliant resurgence was profound. One day, they will graciously tender their crowns, as many believed they were on the cusp of doing. But not just yet. It was incredibly inspiring.

 

I hope you're all having an absolutely wonderful weekend. Lots of love for you! ♥
