On October 12th, a reader sent me this email (with permission to post it):
I hope things have worked out for you. This is indeed an interesting project. You have a very artistic and creative mind.
Wants and desires, are they truly our own wants and desires? Are we conditioned growing up into thinking this is what we should want, desire and become? Commercials do a great job at that. Being an adventurous spirit, willing to try things that frighten you (if even at a subconscious level), and taking on challenges that challenge you to a level you never thought you could compete at grow you more as a person than a few successful dates.
Think only of the positives, and laugh at the negatives as laughter trumps sadness and sorrows every time.
