I can honestly say that Darren was the most memorable and unique prof I ever had. I'll never forget his stories, his fill in the blank quizzes, his impossible to read assigned books, his questions and his views.
Our first day of class, he broke us up into groups and every class after, he made sure we met new people. He used to say that our "George or Elaine" could be in that class and if we didn't meet them, then it was his fault.
Well, I'm happy to say that I met a great friend named Danielle in that class and we still keep in touch. We went for lobster last week and I told her about this story and promptly emailed her a link.
When I read this story, it seemed to be like to many others I had read but as it went on, I started to get chills as I knew there was something different. I didn't know what but when I got to the end, I knew. I started crying because I felt so powerful and alive, like I had been awakened to the possibilities of this world. I've been seeing new things over the past few years in what I do but this story was like the last piece of the puzzle.
I cannot thank Darren enough for the impact he's had on my life. I hope more people are able to read this story. I know I'll be sharing it with my friends.
