It was interesting that both you and Neil felt a let-down after presenting -- and I felt a huge let-down Saturday night that kind of dragged on through part of Sunday. I wonder if others felt it, too.

Here's what I think about this -- Mark and Bob said that they wanted the theme this year to be moving to the next level, and I can't help think of something like the developmental process, where you go through certain stages and at each stage, something happens to topple your world view, and you have to integrate the new information and re-build your world view.

I'm thinking that's what happened to some of us this year at PAB. We were challenged to take things to new levels, to go beyond limits, to try new ways of doing and thinking, and I think that it so upsets the apple cart that our immediate reaction is that sense of let-down.

Once we work through some of it, we can see our way clear, and find the direction we need to move in.

Not that I know what I'm talking about here. Maybe Dr. Brodbeck can shed more light on it...

Hey Dude.

You were an inspiration all weekend.

Can't wait to get together again.
