All this legal stuff makes me so grateful for my own life. Years ago, my friend Jorgy had told me, " I don't know why you would study to be a lawyer, when your brains are so clearly in your hands." And that statement was the dime upon which my life turned. I began to understand the joy that I found in my own creativity. In time, I began to better understand the relationship between the hands and brain in learning. Ultimately, I began to understand that I was not special or unique. The hand/brain relationship was a thing we all share. We learn best, most enthusiastically, and to greatest lasting effect when we learn hands-on. And my own life is so rich and full because I had taken a good friend's advice. On the other hand, I am discovering too, that I could have made a good lawyer, if I had cases like this one, of the heart, to work on where corporate interests were attempting to destroy natural woodlands and mess with people's lives and property.
