2009 has been a pretty quiet year so far. With the first WPBA event not until April, I am training hard for the Turning Stone Classic in February.

Seeking balance, I took a long vacation from pool in November and December to enjoy the other parts of my life. A happy pool player is a good pool player: Not the other way around. In fact, leading a happy and balanced life is my number one goal for 2009. I know that my game, like everything else, will be better for it.

In parting, I'll leave you with my two favorite pieces of advice about pool:

"Focus on delivering a quality stroke, every time, even on the most distasteful of shots." - Mark Wilson

"Don't let this game ruin your life; It's not worth it!" - Mike Zuglan


What I'm reading: The Mysteries of Pittsburgh by Michael Chabon
What I'm watching: Sober House

What I'm practicing: 9-Ball Ghost; Drills from Practicing Pool by Phil Capelle
