Commented on Wilfed Boykin - A dedicated teacher vs Class Clown
Wil was in his youth also an opera singer and a Spiritualist. Several uncanny things happened while I was in his presence. At one time in 2008, we were walking together in London around Charing Cross Road, animatedly discussing the opera singer Janet Baker, when we both simultaneously and abruptly halted in front of a staircase that led up to a nondescript second-story. We somehow were strangely and in fact absolutely COMPELLED to ascend the staircase, and at the top, uninvited, we opened an unmarked door, and suddenly and unexpectedly found ourselves in an old-fashioned London gentleman's club, with damask red carpeting, flocked wallpaper and low ceilings. There were older gentlemen seated about, reading newspapers and taking tea. But, to our utter amazement and delight, on all the walls were maybe a hundred photographs of... Janet Baker!
