Just to update. Despite great effort, wonderful volunteers, and words of encouragement from all over our efforts came up short of victory.
I was humbled by the well wishes received during the campaign from the folks that I consider friends, and virtual neighbors.
We have learned a lot, and now we begin the process of filling in the calendar between now and 2012. This has been a huge learning experience, and is a dream I have had for years, to make whatever corner of the world I can a better place.
Tomorrow, I lock myself in the basement with a case of Mtn. Dew and get caught up on all the painting projects I have been putting off!
