“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” Henry David Thoreau
This series of stickers adorns the window of my car. It’s our family: Don, me, Oscar, a boy standing on his head, August, Gabrielle, and Dolores.
That boy standing on his head (his requested position, by the way) is, of course, Edgar.
And tonight I want to thank Thoreau and Edgar for reminding us all that we should let those who march to the beat of a different drummer step to the music that THEY hear.
Edgar, you may not always “keep pace with your companions,” but that–I predict–will be your strength. Keep stepping (or standing on your head). I love you!
