My friend, I just want to say thank you for all the kind things you’ve said about me. I appreciate them, each and every one. I want you to know that no matter what was said, the final decision as to what I do with my life is mine alone.
I am not going to do a tap dance because I hear I am wonderful, as I continue to ponder what still needs to be done. As I’ve said over a long period, it might be time for me to delegate responsibilities and move forward.
I would do so with the understanding that my name will be on the agreements; it is I who will be responsible for everything.
