"WATERSHED" - Just another little piece of that amazingly large list of educational growth given to us by reading these twelve stories, either in the time of our youth, or as an adult. We may not have realized the learning process that was happening during those readings, but it all becomes a part of who we are.

My grandchild signals by flashlight to me from next door, aving learned Morse from me, who learned it from Winter Holiday.

I sailed my four meter catamarin without any teacher other than Ransome.

On outings with my Boy Scout friends, I build the campfire, heating my pot well before any other, because Susan showed me how.

I studied the constellations because Dick thought it was important.

The list goes on and on...

Thanks Arthur, you game much meaning to my life.
