For my teacher friends.

I was never one to to excel at “regular” school. My test scores were always at the top, and my daily work was almost always excellent – when I did it. But I found it more interesting to do my own thing, to follow my own interests, which usually included asking lots of questions, research and reading, and talking with the teachers themselves, who usually had far more interesting experiences to teach than the ones found in our lessons. I often thought I would have done better in high school if I’d been able to sit down and talk with my teacher over coffee instead of at a desk struggling to stay awake.

It’s a rough business, education.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
