I remember when I first saw Sherlock, his piercing blue eyes, high and prominent cheekbones, and his stiff, upright posture, he stood out so much as he still does.

Even with all eyes on him he stood tall and confident observing each and every student in the classroom. The silence broke as our teacher introduced him, “Everyone, this is Sherlock Holmes.

The actuality in these labels maybe lacking,…
