looking back....throw back Thursday!

1988!  I was 22 and a grad student in special education at University of Illinois-Chicago.  I didn't learn ANYTHING (until I graduated and started teaching blind students...THEN I learned something) but I did meet my wife.  In the open ceramics studio.  Which had nothing to do with my program, but is a whole lot more important, hmmm?

Your 'little did I know reminds me of the saying that straight paths are drawn from crooked lines. Andrew Greeley put those words into one of his character's speeches. Great pic! About that same time I was teaching, and my collar would have been obscured by long curly hair.
