Nice post Ric. Dave is quite the writer. I love his stuff.
On Bob's Pic page he offers links to other Clusterville residents. Not the least of which is Amanda Best's page...(gentlemen take note...thank me later). I'm guessin ole Bob would add a link to any CHer's homepage...try askin....have yer credit card # handy.
Butt i digress...since my son resembles that kid in the story...to me it really hit's home.
...cept I am not responsible for his disability.
...that radio (my mind) is another thing...it's a real chore to keep it off THAT channel that plays those depressing songs...
To wave the magic wand of "all better" ...and see my son run and play ...reminds me of the one I use daily...momentarilly... over this computer screen as I read the message board...the guest book...my e-mails.
Prayers and wishes and reality collide...as I futily shoot the arrow at the stars as the radio pays that "no hope" channel...
...butt I have learned to aim the arrow at the treetops...a hard pull but achievable...find toys that Adam CAN play with...be content with the joy in his face that my puny efforts bring...help CHer's find, not a "miracle cure", but a way to manage the pain, or at least make em smile, and turn the channel on THAT radio (my mind) to some dancin tunes or the old Jesse Colin Young stuff ...that raises the level of hope without settin the mark too high...
...I'm just sittin here watchin the wheels go round an round...I really love to watch them roll.
