A new picture with an old story.



Journaling: When Linda and I met at the Central Florida Writing Project in 1997, we became fast friends. It didn’t take long for her to introduce me to Marc, and I soon began to visit their house regularly. One of the first times I met Don we were sitting in the living room chatting, and he started talking about science. He regularly talks about science and technology, and I’ve gotten used to that. In the beginning, though, it was a little intimidating. I didn’t often know what he was talking about. I’m an English teacher, for heaven’s sake! On this particular day, in a normal conversation, he brought up the 2nd law of thermodynamics. I’m certain he wasn’t expecting any of us in the room to know what he was talking about, but I said, “Oh yeah...that’s entropy!” He gave me a rather stunned look at that point. I knew right then that I was in. I had hooked him with my knowledge of entropy. We have a lot of Hoenstine stories that mostly revolve around the exploits of kooky family members, but “entropy” is the first family story of my own. It still makes me giggle every time I think of his surprised face.
