Dear Son, how lonely is it being a freak? Very.

Thank goodness I have my best friend and soul mate (your Mom) who “gets me”.

  1. Jeff,

    Good thing the concept of “freakiness” is a relative term, depending on the norms of those around you. I guess what I am saying is that I suppose I am a freak as well, because you seem normal to me! 🙂

    Have a great day, my friend!


  2. Jeff,

    But you are right – standing out as different from the crowd can definitely be a lonely place to find yourself.

    Interestingly enough, though, that is also a common trait of many a leader.


  3. Ditto….I will ALWAYS be attracted to your spirit, hopes, beliefs, wisdom, vision and dreams. Here’s to infinity and beyond. I consider myself very, very, very luck to have u in my life…and, Chapin’s, too!
