Life’s Mountain Trail

I went to the Barnes and Noble bookstore today and recalled how I became an English teacher.  I got the background at Christmas time when Mr. Wieselberg, Dad’s business partner, would give me one or two English language classics, like Treasure Island or Tom Sawyer.  I read them, and became very articulate in English class.

Of course, then there were the nuns, like Sister Maura, who taught me grammar so that I was an expert.  Life takes many unexpected turns.  I wanted to be a physicist first, but Manhattan College told me there are no physicists who are partially color blind.

And now I’m an author.  Life really is amazing.
