chapter 2

Chapter two of our Excellent Adventure requires a bit of background so you won't think Mary (yes, Mary is the principle player in this episode) is even a little bit weird.  She has always had a soft spot in her heart for the downtrodden, the disadvantaged, the strange ones who always veer off course just a step short of the finish line, heading off on their own path, who don't fit into either the round or square hole.  She has a large store of empathy in her soul for those who suffer the stigma of nonconformity. She taught those fringe dwellers for most of her teaching career, so her feelings for them are ingrained and immutable.  And if she encounters such a creature who is also a musician, her sensitivity and sympathy jump into hyperdrive. I think you can probably sense where this is heading...........continued later........
