2. charlette: what a goof-ball. charlotte never did let a chance go by to tease me about my hair or opinions on dating. but that was okay - she fascinated me. a conversation shared with this girl - who had no home, one trunk with all her possessions in it, and a padawan braid tucked behind her left ear - was not something you stumbled across every time you got in line for a morning cup of coffee. honestly though, she taught me so much about humility, simplicity, and community. that’s why i insisted on having everyone at the pancake breakfast write one word that expressed charlotte’s place in our shared community on her hand.
