Thank you, Mr. Dalton!

Dear Mr. Dalton,

I am incredibly grateful for the lessons that you have taught me in the past two years. Our class discussions on Murakami’s Norwegian Wood have left a lasting impression on me. Your insights on the firefly and the single streak of white cloud have inspired me to find meaning in the small things in life. I remember you telling us that you were introduced to Toru’s life at an age similar to ours, and it has transformed you ever since. I was never a believer that a novel could change a person’s life but seeing how powerful an impact it had on you, I am willing to believe, and I am hoping to find that novel that will change my life one day. I remember you also shared with us that you won a writing competition once and were invited to write with an accomplished writer for an entire day. I am inspired not by your winning the competition (though that’s incredibly impressive) but by the idea that you followed your passion and kept literature with you until today. I hope that one day I will be able to commit to something that will make me lose track of time too. Thank you, Mr. Dalton, for all that you have done. Cheers to the future!

Best,

May
