Thanks this was brought home to me again recently when I was teaching a
class as a quest lecturer. A non-traditional student, with tears in her
eyes, told us that we had given her hope back to her for the first time
since she had lost her sight do to abuse. She felt she had a future now and
that through the technology we had introduced her to she felt she could
truly learn.

I can share dozens of similar stories, as can many of you, and for me that
is what life is all about!

I particularly like your closing sentiment, Ron -- yes, it feels good
to look forward to something in the morning. Thanks for the reminder.

As someone who just took the leap back to private consulting herself,
I wish you all the best in your new direction, and along Life's
Journeys in general.
