One Wednesday night as I sat doodling in my Religious School notebook I suddenly sensed his presence.
A Force Awakened me, causing the purple Flair pen to drop from my hand.
I turned my head toward the doorway of the classroom, and there he was. I’d seen Richard before, but on that night, I finally noticed him.
As he sauntered past my desk, I became captivated by his long, wavy, rebellious hair, groovy corduroys, Camp Kawaga jacket, and a smirk that just wouldn’t quit.
Thinking back on that night, I imagine it all happening in super slow-mo, and hearing this music in my head:
Richard’s Sauntering Music: The New Cars, “Moving in Stereo”

The title of this blog, “There he Stood in the Doorway” is loosely borrowed from The Eagles song, Hotel California. I also tweaked the lyrics of the song a little because it sums up what was yet to come…
“There he stood in the doorway,
I heard the classroom bell
And I was thinking to myself,
‘This could be Heaven or this could be Hell.’”

I am everlastingly grateful for your taking him off our hands. And that is after really enjoying his company in Florida for the last few days.
My pleasure, Papa!
