In reply to: LO24554
Thank you for this beautiful, wise and insightful message that greeted me
when I booted my computer this morning.
I will think about it for a long time, in contrast to some of the more
"academic" or "psuedo-academic" posts that at times reveal more about the
sender's struggle for intellectual recognition by his/her peers, than of a
genuine search for wisdom and understanding.
