From the very beginning—purely personal; no offense meant to patient, loving, totally committed teachers all over the world—but for me, school was a lost cause.

Nothing worked.
    

The only memory I have, happy or otherwise—most likely from the first few days...

I don’t think I’ve ever shared—I’m trying to update my vocabulary—with you my near-death experience in mid-Atlantic on a very old—trust me; I don’t know ships but I know old—merchant vessel converted into a troop ship—I’d say hurriedly but I don’t want to be hypercriti...

This might sound like a weird question, out of the blue; does your mind ever take a break?

Seriously, I mean, does your screen now and then go blank for a while, and into something like a rest mode? Peaceful, no thoughts, quiet, give you a little while to just think the...

Ready?

A Whaaa? moment; a confession:

Oh my god…

Those poor kids.

The terror…

Helpless…

No way out…they're doomed….

Only a miracle could save those boys. 

Then, Hope: volunteers, non-stop, experienced divers from everywhere who saw the challenge, who knew what needed to be done…and how. Each and every step, plan...

First time I ever saw TV was in the lobby of a movie theater and the screen was green and —My God! It was a Brooklyn Dodgers game!— and my pal and I were just out of our minds with excitement.

I mean, that was a time when we didn't watch; we listened to games on the rad...

Well, we're talking all right, but is it me you're talking to? Or am I so tuned to being the person who's talking to me would like me to be, that it's not until I reflect upon the conversation, that I can truly respond?
