Firstly, the Buffy post got so many views! More than any single post ever...by a Lot! I'm thinking of mentioning Buffy The Vampire Slayer in every single post now.
Here is a favorite card from February. Really, I think it's the wee small summation of Charles' life that I love best. I may re visit his story to flesh it out a little.
Here is Charles. Perhaps as a boy Charles was encouraged to write verses, as he showed some talent for them. But Charles reeaalllyyyy
loved millinery. He loved to watch his mother shop for hats. He loved
the way they sat upon her sleek head. He loved their extravagance and
elegance and ohhh, their beauty. But the educational system in which Charles was raised limited him to writing verses. Alas.
