Yes, he heard a different drummer.
Ella Numera Dos & I were talking yesterday about her friend Jordan, who died unexpectedly on Thursday.
Even though they'd known each other almost all their young lives, "We hung out a lot in 9th grade & before," she reminded me. He went a different way after that.
Taking part in 6-Word Saturday, which is brought to you by Cate at Show My Face. This snap is from Acolyte Appreciation Sunday at our church 2 years ago. Numera Dos is front-and-center; Jordan is in the back row, in the shadows on the right.
The English Teacher in me wants to share the whole quote from Henry David Thoreau with you:
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."
