special persons 2016



Another Special Person's Day at my godson's school, I take a train to DC to see my college roommate and attend my godson's open house. That's me, the Special Person, reading Catherine Valente while the godson, also Special and a Person, reads Berenstain Bears. Later, I will buy the Berenstain Bears book and read it to the godson in the Afterwords cafe, and be struck as I often am with the inescapable sexism of childhood worlds that were once so homey.

When my college roommate goes to his guitar lesson I will go to the Folger Shakespeare Library, where, as someone who manages museum volunteers for a living, I will be delighted with the volunteer who leads the tour (though dismayed by the indifferent attendant in the box office).

On this trip, I will discover (through reading a Lego Star Wars book on Yoda) why Lego Star Wars is more popular with children than Person Star Wars.

Funnier jokes.

"Those who are wise will shine as brightly as the expanse of the Heavens, and those who have instructed many in uprightousness as bright as stars for all eternity" -Daniel 12:3, NJB

Here's also what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' -the Infant Jesus of Prague.
