Thank you Mike Essig. I would like to take this opportunity to share a small piece of personal trivia with you.

Yours was the first piece of poetry I read when I joined Medium. I was so very impressed that I followed you around almost every day for a while till I found my own voice on this platform. So in that sense you have been my mentor without you even knowing it. :)

Thank you… your work is a treasure chest of jewels rare.
