I’m quiet in most group settings … not much for parties, even when I know and care about everybody present … but I’ve discovered that being the self-designated photographer helps me to enjoy the gathering. In classroom settings, however, I am a very comfortable student … unafraid to ask questions … unafraid to give answers. I also love to read and to write research papers. I like to cook for my family. If I’m serving the meal, everybody else who knows how to chat in a group can chat, and I am happy to be busy serving. I like to talk to people one person at a time. My friends and family value my listening and my prayerful advice.
- "I who am dead a thousand years and wrote this sweet archaic song, Send you my words for messengers the way I shall not pass along. . . . O friend unseen, unborn, unknown, student of our sweet English tongue, Read out my words at night, alone: I was a poet, I was young." -- James Elroy Flecker (1884-1915)
