“You Are My Sunshine”
Just Had a Sweet Thought
While remembering the Facebook WHS 1970 Reunion Anniversary Post by Rick
Alan asked something about reunions in general.
And I answered that I never went to a reunion – being too “quiet” for such gatherings.
And, then, a few minutes later
I was washing a few dishes and was thinking about that FB conversation.
And was imagining trying to explain my quietness.
And I thought of Clark Kent
Remember how quiet he was?
And, I imagined saying to Alan:
Well, I know I’m no Clark Kent – but maybe “Mark Kent.”
Maybe I’ve been this way all my life, like an acorn that is still waiting for the one who will be his sunshine and rain — and he will finally sprout.
Then, I wondered:
Who is my sunshine and rain?
Who is going to make this acorn finally break open and sprout?
Imagine . . .
Being an acorn for 68 years?
In “A Tale of Two Cities”
Which we studied in Mr. Stanley Haines English class in junior year at WHS
There was a chapter or scene about Dr. Manette being “recalled to life” —
After 18 years in prison.
And a grave digger, whose name I can’t recall, was thinking to himself about that in the story,
About being recalled to life.
Well, that don’t seem like so much compared to being a seed waitin’ to sprout for 68 years.
What a magic moment that will be!

In my junior year at WHS, a student named Eileen, who had been in my class at St. Charles School for 5 years [4th through 8th grades], appeared in September in my homeroom. Her desk was on the opposite side of the room. She had not been a student of WJHS when I was there in 9th grade. And she had not been at WHS in 10th grade either. And then, a few weeks later, I noticed she wasn’t there in homeroom anymore. Didn’t see her again at WHS.
