”Isn’t he a dreamboat?”  Joanne was talking about her second husband.  That was the first thing she thought when she met him: he was hot!

The first husband was a 3rd grade teacher in Massachusetts who used to play guitar to his class.  When he died, one of his students – an autistic boy – hand drew Puff the Magic Dragon.  Joanne hung it on her wall, beside the cash register, to remember. 

A dragon lives forever, but not so little girls and boys.  Painted wings and giants’ rings make way for other toys.   If there’s a time when Jackie Paper comes no more, mourn and grieve and move past things and resume your fearless roar.
