NOTHING TO DO WITH THANKSGIVING


HAPPY THANKSGIVING. This has nothing to do with turkey.  It's a photograph I took one afternoon when Elliot was supposed to be studying Algebra II.  I almost gave up hope. He wouldn't focus. Instead he found distractions, such as the one pictured here.  He barely passed the course, and now alas, he'll never be a brilliant mathematician.

But he does enjoy his theatre courses and maybe one day he'll spread those wings and fly out of his chair. I also hope to fly off this page someday, onto a bookshelf somewhere or into your imagination.  Such hopes are not entirely irrelevant.  For though hope cannot effect an outcome, it does keep us happy and thankful.
