Alan, you are too kind as always. It’s so good to hear that from you!
I have to tell you, now that I’m back in Europe, I often find myself in the position of “the American”, embodying a spirit of pugnacious, positive, go-getter optimism.
Whenever I have to take on that role, I think about your adventurous fighter-pilot, million-dollar smile attitude, and that’s what I try to emulate. You’ve been a big influence on me in the part that matters most: Remembering to have fun being smart, to laugh as loud as I want, and to love life in a big way.
I’d love to read an article from you on just that: the mindset that lets you smile the way you do. Would you please write it?
