The human spirit is as expansive as the cosmos. This is why it is so tragic to belittle yourself or to question your worth. No matter what happens, continue to push back the boundaries of your inner life. The confidence to prevail over any problem, the strength to overcome adversity and unbounded hope — all reside within you.

ACEN was an absolute delight this year, my friend. I think you would have been pleased with the sites and the spectacle of it all. To this day, I've never met such a robust audience of kind and thoughtful individuals. I have plenty of stories and pictures to share with you when this time is right. Until then, be well and never stop eating that cereal, eh?--Johnny

I wish I could have gone. It has been the one thing I look forward to each year and I am sad to have missed it. I would be delighted to hear about your time there. My friends seemed to have enjoyed their time there, it was well documented for my sake :P
