Episode 24 - Chapter 19 - "Gerhard"
Finally. the feel good chapter of the summer! (Seems Scottie hit a vein of heaviness for the past few episodes, but that stops here...) Scottie reads about the most important man in her life - and as you read her book, you'll learn she's not alone; Chapter 19 - "Gerhard." Scottie knows she's been blessed with an amazing relationship that not many would know is still possible in this modern age: namely Master artist & apprentice. Gerry Vom Steeg was & is just that for Scottie. Marcy hopes that we'll all be inspired by Gerhard's example and be a shining light, for somebody in our lives.
"Be somebody's Gerhard"
Gerhard is many things to many people, but one thing is common to all: he is all in for everyone, tapping into an inexhaustible source of love, support and... make no mistake, fire. Scottie first got into Gerry's class as a ceramics student at Rim of the World High in 1076, and continues to study under "Vom Steeg's" wing to this day. Its been a life long apprenticeship in all things art and all things... life. But all of that was suddenly on the line when Scottie came out just two years ago. Sure. no doubt Gerry support practically anything Scottie would do, but would the Master still be able to relate to his apprentice. Would he be able to truly open his heart to Scottie as a woman?
