Who by fire and who by water? What do you do when you are both driven by a dream and haunted by a premonition? The Principal of Rivington Street has to decide which to follow. In a short, beautifully crafted cameo Henry Mazel presents us with a stark choice- follow the dream notwithstanding the fear of where it may end, or stick with what we have? An excellent read.
