I'm writing to thank you for loads of inspiration. What got me to write this letter was a little text under a photo on one of your opening pages in issue 286. It said: "No man is an island." I do not really know how many people got something out of that but I surely did. And I think that is what the person who wrote it was hoping for: "Not too many people who read this will get anything from it, but those who see the connection will be very stoked." Of course I am not sure if I got the connection either. What I saw were the opening sentences of a quote in Ernest Hemingway's classic book For Whom the Bell Tolls. "No man is an island, intire of it selfe; every man a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine owne were; any man's death diminishes me, because am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee."
Thank all of you guys there at the mag for inspiring me with details such as this. And continue to keep up the good work.
We are your overlords. T-Ed
