A mid-week tease for my upcoming essay on… well, you’ll have to check back this Friday and find out. In the meantime, here is an except:
Jian Be Nimble
Jian is one of three children my brother and his wife have adopted from China. Jian is 9 years old and looks vaguely Asian. With round eyes, caramel skin, and a forehead trimmed by some bang-like fringe, Jian appears to be a boy on the prowl for mischief – but he is not. Jian is shy, speaks softly, is sweeter than candy corn, and has a much better appreciation for the term, limitation, than you or I ever will…
Please check back this weekend to find out what we can learn from Jian. Oh, and there is this video of my nephew, being buried in hail last July — by his sisters. Enjoy…
Oh, and if you wonder why I chose the name Frozen Living Guy Days, Jian and his family live in Nederland, Colorado, home of Frozen Dead Guys Days — the best street fair on the planet.
