My thinkings to the giver

http://bluesuedeshoes.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/anne-shulock-49_the-giver.jpg%3Fw%3D298%26h%3D300
This is a picture of the giver how i could imaginate him for myself. He´s an old man with crinkles on his forehead and his face and big grommets under his wise eyes. He has a big grey beard and a moustache he has summarized many memories in his past as a human and as the reciever of the memories of the community to protect and support them in the same degree. It also shows me that he is the perfect teacher to teach Jonas to get a good reciever because he knows what it means to walk through all this and how hard it can get. around his face. He wrinkles his forehead and his eyebrows get wrinkled like the nose, too. It looks a little bit grimly and shows that he knows many things that other people shouldn´t know or don´t want to know. This shows that he lived a very long time and that he get to know very many memories in his life. This requires him to be Jonas´ teacher on his way to become the new reciever of the memories.
