Even the seemingly unsolvable mystery offers an answer, somewhere, somehow.
Thank you for doing what was once believed to be impossible.
For your persistence, with boundless effort and not a small encounter with obsession. For the cross-eyed view of routine that always clears the vision. It’s a gift and a power well used.
For keeping away from the obvious, the nay-sayers and the meaningless babble.
Together, your quiet wisdom and careful steps made it work out so well, so completely. I believe your rewards will be wonderful and lasting, and certainly deserved.
For all those who have been in contact over the years, accept a special thanks. You have done so much to keep the ship afloat and with a true rudder.
And those careful readers I have not met but wish I had the opportunity. Someday, perhaps.
It’s good to know the answers are now in the hands of others, each worthy and wise. I look forward to your words.
Even the final phrase has meaning.
Now, go ahead and have some fun. No mysteries, just the good times:
