Thank you

To the man who taught me to run towards the dream when I was a child, with strong arms and high knees over every hill, thank you. 

To the man who brought me onto the team of Leaps of Faith, thank you. 

To the boy whose capacity for wonder is an unfailing light in my life, thank you. 

To the girl who saw my heart in college, especially when I couldn’t see it, thank you. 

To the woman who taught me what she knows, thank you.

To the woman who co-conspired my first big break into the world of art, thank you.
