i feel that i would never trade this moment for anything in the world. this ranks as one of the best things that has happened in my life. okay, it may not be the best, cause there are more wonderful, more interesting, and more intimate moments. but suffice it to say that this goes to the bottom of the top 10.
all systems are go. materials are all prepared. participants have been informed. and i am ready to face this thing. look at it straight in the eye. i may come out beaten and broken after this. i am also ready for that. i may do more blunders, but i feel i can draw from within to maintain composure.
if it all comes down to this, then i hope i rise above it all.
here i go!
