x365: 8 of 365; Jim R.

I had the privilege of meeting you twice: once as a two-year old child just mastering language, the second time as a university student in my early twenties. You took me aside and told me that I may remember you dimly, if at all, as a friend of the family, but you remembered me as one of your best friends. I didn't tell you, but that's exactly how I remembered you as well. Now you're a federal court judge, and I, having lost my facility for language altogether, write speeches for politicians.
