Hi Harry,

This is quite a story. It held my interest right from the onset. I think Mr. Parsons is wiser than his students believe, but he makes me wonder. Will he take whatever the girl offers in exchange for a passing mark, or will he be satisfied if she increases her effort in the vain hope that she might actually learn to appreciate beauty.

I'm inclined to see a parllel here with the love of gain surpassing the love of beauty now. Whatever makes a fast back is what is sought after and the rest...well, it gets left to rot, or is ignored.

I feel sorry for both the characters in this. One seems stuck in the past, possibly unable to move forward to see what beauty is available in the present; the other too busy with what the future may hold to see the joys of the present or the beauties of the past.

Yeah, I think there are levels here, my friend. Thank you so much for sharing. It was a pleasure to read.

Thanks Shadowlight.

They have something in common, these two. Both of them USING Whistler and his painting to get what they want. A lot of people do that don't they?
