I truly appreciate the compliment, Toby. Believe it or not, writing is a subject that did not come to me easily. I really had to work at becoming an effective writer. I still struggle with my writing.
As strange as it may seem, I am not one for cameras or being thrust into the limelight. Balancing a way to share what I have learned over the years with my need for privacy was at the forefront when making my decision to start sharing information on a large scale. I see the kind of attention that Drew, Denny, Martin B, Jamil, Gordon, Charlie P, John Palmer, and the other highly visible members of the community draw at NHC, and it makes me very uncomfortable because I am introverted to point where just being in large crowds wears me out. Being easily recognizable would make me not want to attend NHC.
