The Regis and Kelly Show interview last week revealed Adam’s first gig as a child performer — Linus in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” This took me back, years ago, to my own childhood because Peanuts, by Charles Shulz, was my favorite comic strip. I can just envision how Adam was transformed into the cutest Linus as a little boy!
Linus was an unusually smart character for his age, and was considered to be a philosopher…always behaving in a rational and calm manner, especially under trying circumstances. Linus invented the “Great Pumpkin” and was the only character in the comic strip who believed that presents would be delivered on Halloween. Though he occasionally convinced other characters the “Great Pumpkin” was real, they always lost faith, while Linus kept his.
I can’t help but think how these same characteristics parallel Adam’s qualities. Unusually smart, rational, calm, able to deal with trying circumstances, never losing faith…
Then, the very same day as Adam’s interview with Regis and Kelly, I ran across this quote from Charles Shulz:
“The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are simply the ones who care the most.”
As fans, I think this is who we are for Adam and his new, musical journey. We aren’t powerful producers or music industry magnates…but we care the most. And this fansite will make a difference.
Now you know what Adam, Linus, Charles Schulz, and WE have in common!
