A Thought for Today
Suffer silently or out loud but never despair.
March 13, 2001
I can't begin to tell you how much I've genuinely enjoyed your flight plans leading up to the concerts and then those where you enlisted your cadre of 'cub reporters' to describe the
performances. Based on the mail and comments I've received I'm not alone in my appreciation. I know how much love and work you put into all of this and it
surely equals whatever effort I put into the shows.
So, once again it's a duel triumph. We do make a helluva team.
You are a born writer. And it is my good fortune that you are also a dedicated keeper of the flame of all that I've worked so hard to build over the years.
I wish more than anything in the world that you could have been along to experience this past week. You were such a part of it without knowing it. I won't add anything to what your correspondents have written right now because I'd like to save it for a series of "Dispatches from the Front" for next weeks Flight Plans. I do admit to still being a little shell-shocked from 5 of the best and most memorable nights in my life. In addition to the concerts I am including, of course, the three S.T.A.G.E Aids benefit performances.
So many nice people -- old friends, new friends and strangers who didn't feel strange at all and became instant family. There are heaps of dizzy, touching and delightful moments that I want to talk about. With your permission I'll take the weekend off in an attempt to digest it all, so that I can write my own version of how everything went down.
