I am sure that you, while looking up the heavens of research possibilities, are aware of each step up that steep hill of academic expectations, each entry carrying a heavy weight of responsibility on your shoulders. I have a sense that your middle name most likely will remain Atlas, the Titan who carries and endures the sky upon his shoulders: genuine, gigantic, but also vulnerable.
Don’t give up your good work, no matter how many lawyers from overseas come knocking at your door. Jeff, I salute you, half a continent away from Colorado.
