Preston, may I quote you on your Topanga Canyon story? It's inspirational, and I'd like to share it on my public forums. I think it would encourage many. I know for a fact a couple of people have cried happy tears reading it, including Joni herself. Cheers!

Thanks, guys! I'm really hoping to see all of you at the workshop in LA, or at least some of you! There are still nine slots open for Volume 35.
And best of all, tomorrow's Thursday!
