October 3, 1994: A MORE DISTANT LOCATION

Dear Dominic,

I am pleased that you are in a more distant location in which you can develop your own personality and lifestyle. When one lives at home, one is caused to accommodate the pressure and demands of parents who never seem to realize that one grows up and is no longer a child in school. My comment, here, is not a complaint, but a general observation based on many years or contact with numerous young friends.

If some of us seem somewhat interesting, it is because we have seen more things happen, we have journeyed longer, we have struggled more intensely with ideas and experiments. Perhaps we are not really interesting, but only peculiar, quaint, or eccentric.

Sincerely yours,

“H”

Howard taught Spanish and Health when I was in high school, but taught more than that: camping, hiking, fishing, bicycling, respect for Nature and for God.  He remains a good, true friend.
