B Bauer, thank you. Writers never really know if they’re efforts will land or crash and burn; better yet, if they’ll even get off the ground. I write to offer a different point of view to those looking for another option to broaden their horizon. Hero? That’s high praise and is greatly appreciated, but I’m just a guy, as riddled with flaws as the next person.
The connections with people like you make those baited comments soaked in vitriol (which I delete with little to no hesitation) all the more insignificant and the attempt to have even a marginally positive effect on anyone all the more worthwhile.
