What avails love when life is so ephemeralWhat avaiIs a mortalaas love for the immortalLove that is snuffed out by deathaas passing blastLove without the pain, the passion that consumesA flickering spark I am, aglow for a fleeting glanceFlow vain for a flickering spark to chase an eternal flameGrant me the bliss of eternal life, O Lord,And mine will be the ecstasy of eternal love.Give me the pleasure of an everlasting painAn agony that lacerates my soul for ever.

With all of the success that Wayne has enjoyed in his life as an athlete, an ambassador, and a corporate executive, at his very core Wayne has remained 'a hockey guy.'

About the process of growing up .. What follows is tragic. We stop risking for fear of making mistakes, fear of not fitting in, fear of being embarrassed or humiliated by saying the 'wrong' thing.

I don't know exactly what he's done, but whatever it is, I like it. Honestly, the guy has a renewed life for the game. His spirit uplifts everyone else.
