Summer in the park



Walking in our little park I met an ex- pupil of mine. She must have been 6 or 7 when I was teaching, Of course I didn't recognize her, but she told me who she was and we had a nice chat. She told me that the park and the pond are going to disappear to make place for a car park. It's a shame and I am very sorry that every thing has to be replaced by ugliness.

Sad that the lovely park will be destroyed. Oi. But wonderful that your former student found you again. I still remember with admiration and gratitude the real educators and character-building teachers we had fifty years ago.

Well Dina I just recall a few things I could have done better, much better! But she was always a nice girl and brother too.
