    Bringing back his mind's eye memory is special. His memory of you, even more special.

    You know I don't know which of you got the most out of that trip. I know your client enjoyed himself, but I think he gave you an experience that will never be forgotten.

    Thank you all for your interest in this story and comments - yes, it was a valuable day for me personally and professionally. I've heard from many of you via private message about similar experiences, and it continues to amaze me - the powerful and sometimes healing powers that this pursuit brings us, despite how or where we practice it. I am blessed in being part of this community and for the friendships built along the way.

    See you out there.
