You brought a chuckle to me and a moment to consider how fortunate I
have been in the society. My daughter brought me to my first event and
showed mom the ropes. She introduced me and explained the things going
on around that I didn't understand. Gentles like yourself welcomed me
with open arms, a joke, and work. Before I knew it I was working troll,
singing, and lending a hand wherever needed. It was so gently and
graciously done. For this I am very greatful, and have come to love
this dream we live.
