Gratitude

In the long gone days of undergraduate studies a name stands out that has had influence on my pen to this day. Professor John Franzetti had a passion for the English language and his love of literature was infectious. As a journalism major, I entered the course with an “I need to pile up credits in my major” attitude. But that minimal expectation vanished in about the first twenty minutes of the initial class. Professor Franzetti transported my mind and spirit to the beauty of authors that had catapulted his mind into different spheres. it was not merely a class, it was an adventure into the profound world of words and ideas. That enthusiasm for probing the plots of writers has never dwindled, and  the memory of that wonderful mentor Professor John will always be close to my heart.
