Notes From There

Dancer With A Bouquet Bowing by Edgar Degas (1877)


“There is often less danger in the things we fear than in the things we desire.”  John Carlton Collins

I remember when I was a young boy walking to school I was constantly on guard for some large bullying dog way-laying me.  And so I was prudent to hide sticks and stones at strategic points along the way just for protection.  But, once at school, there loomed yet an even greater menace: there would always be that same pretty face creeping into my mind trying to waylay me from my studies, too.  To this day I’m not sure which was worse: the danger of getting bit by a big dog or being bit by love and hurt forever after by that doggone LeAnn Gifford!
