We were encouraged to look back and pinpoint the one person who made a positive impact on our life’s course, whether it was a constant presence or a 15 minute encounter. Then we were asked to write a letter thanking this particular person and explaining the difference they made.
Personally, the one who immediately popped into my head was James Biggers, my junior high art teacher. His encouragement at such a young age let me know that I was good enough. For me, he began the path for a lifetime of art.
And would you consider a thank you, if this person is still around?
