Message:  Oh yes Rob. He was/is quite the basketball player!

I would also say that he was the most profound and memorable teacher I have ever known. Literature with Paul was something completely different than anything in this world. I never liked being tied down to school... and it showed in my attendance. *grin*

I was given the senior award of "elusive butterfly" in high school....

"She does great work" the principle said, "when we can find her!"

But I went just to go to Paul's class. And he remains the only teacher I return regularly to visit.

I'm grateful for all the music he introduced me to while I was there.

When my dad died, he gave me a beautiful card... on the front were two hands, open palms up, as if they were waiting for something magical to land in them. On the inside, in thick black ink, all it said was

"Sorry"

He, one of the most prfound writers and speakers of his time knew that words would never fix what I was feeling... yet... all is as it should be. *grin*
