Ode to Judy ShepardSteve Fellner
I imagine your pain after you give a speech to a college audience. You watch someone in the front row applaud, determined to show his respect for you. You want him to stop. Gratitude can be the most difficult thing to enjoy. But you always end up pitying the man who is scared to stop clapping. His hands grow so red, they look almost sunburned, as if left in a field, unguarded from the outside weather and whatever else is there.
