The Gymnopédist

The music of Satie has captured the heart of a teenage boy who has walked through the privileged door of classical music because his mother was given an old upright piano. Along with his love for music he has a love for acrobatics. The Boys Club in his town received a grant to buy acrobatic equipment and for years he has spent his summers learning to swing on the bars, do cartwheels on the mats, and his favorite, walk the wire. Satie has become the soundtrack to his feats of daring. One morning he and his friend attempt to do what they have never done before.

  1. Hi, I'm Diane. I came across your page because I was searching for diagrams that would help me understand the comings and goings of people and groups in the book of Mosiah. One of the images was of your 'Book of Mormon Summer" illustrations. It helped me! But in addition I found some other very profound and meaningful quotes and thoughts you have taken the time to write about. I read some of the book you are writing and I like it A LOT. I'm hoping if you get it published you will add me to an email list so I can read the whole story!!
