Food For Thought

"Better is possible. It does not take genius. It takes diligence. It takes moral clarity. It takes ingenuity. And above all, it takes a willingness to try."

- Atul Gawande (from Better)

I'm so stealing this . . . I've been stealing awesome quotes from you for years Pam. . . and yay for your awesome rose-purchasing bf!

Glad you liked it, Andre! His writing is very inspiring. I'm sure if I looked I could find more good ones like this.

I absolutely agree - and those roses look impressive. Looking forward to seeing you soon and hopefully meeting your BF.

To Condense several replies into one:
1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I totally forgot, which I should not, as you are so close to mine. (today!)

2. I am SO stealing this, too- I am coaching a wind quintet in a few minutes, and will print this quote and take it to them...

3. I perused the Volti site. Awesome little group! What a great program coming up. Wish I was closer and could come. Nice to see Robert Paterson doing so well, too. (Hi, Rob!)

Pam, I owe you an email! You sent me a question weeks ago that actually started a long reply- in this day and age of twitter and whatnot, I still try to (gasp!) write letters! I'm still working on that, but I have been giving myself a full head 360 prostate exam with work of late so its slow going...

Finally, I miss your kitties too.

Best,
CC

Thank you, CC. :-) You'll be glad to know that Bear (the big brown cat you fell in love with) is still with us.
