It's funny how life changes day to day. Every once in a while, though, your life takes you 'round a corner and a whole new view opens up before you...exhilirating, but a bit scary at the same time. A while ago, I began to write about the view as I peeked around that corner with some hesitation. Since that time, my life has taken a breathtaking pace - racing headlong into a world full of excitement, uncertainty, urgency, and a relentless new hope. What follows is my attempt at understanding this new world and my place in it. I humbly submit my words to you as a man peering through a dark glass...looking for a small glimmer of light in the darkness.
