So richly deserved. If it weren't for your encouragement, friendship and unstinting support, I would never have progressed from fumbling about in the dark. Thanks for being one of life's "good guys".

Awww, you're all so kind - I sure appreciate it.

Monica - sorry I never did make the ball, I wanted to try and give it a whirl, but never made the time. I'm off to go see what you put together for the ball - I know it's spectacular.

Christina - you are so very kind, thank you for the kind words, you have inspired me from the time we 'met'.

Kathy & Maggie - thanks so much!

Leaves of Grass

This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
