Great Rehearsal

It’s really coming together. It’s a great thing to see. Thank you, everyone, for what you’re doing. You might be doing this for yourself, but your dedication is such a gift to all the rest of us who went into it for OURselves. There is nothing better than being a part of a great team, is there? There’s something masturbatory about individual accomplishments. Tonight reminded me of boot camp when the company finally gets the drill down: 82 boots strike the pavement as one. Rifles move at identical angles and speeds. A great column of marching men divides in two to form a company six abreast, all while marching forward, oblique, forward, oblique, forward, to the right flank, to the left flank. It makes you feel invincible–as we will be next Wednesday.
