One Small Cog

So this arrived while I was out of town:

Tien had a vision, a big dream, worked hard to make it happen.  Big dreams don't happen without planning, dedication, effort, on the part of the dreamer.  And sometimes, the path to completion can be smoothed, aided and abetted by others.  

I, too, have dreamed big dreams.  I know how much effort they can take and my personal philosophy can be summed up in one short someone else's candle does not diminish mine.  So I offered to help in one way I knew I transcribing the interviews that were conducted with a number of other creative people.  

I was happy to be one small cog in the 'machinery' that brought this dream into material form.  

I am also blessed that a similar crowd is helping me bring my latest big dream into reality.  Life can be challenging and difficult.  Good friends help get over the hurdles and smooth the path.
