Letter #17 — Someone From Your Childhood

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” – Thomas A. Edison


     When I was very little, we lived with a community garden behind our house. We had a fence between it and our yard, but there was a gate. I remember going through that gate quite often to spend time with the gardeners who would come to work their plot. I barely recall helping, talking, and enjoying lifesavers or juice packs. One of you let one of my brother’s borrow a golf set (with which he accidentally gave me a black eye). One of you took us on mushroom hunting trips. I was quite young at that time, but I still remember you. You never do understand or know the affect that you are having on others, do you?
