During the Inauguration ceremony our class was watching on TV today, some famous musicians were introduced. Itzhak Perlman was one of them.
My student "Ryan" was sitting beside me and asked, "Who's that?"
"The best violinist in the world," I whispered.
"We should do a project on him," he said. I laughed. These poor kids. Can't simply
be in the moment when I'm in the room.
