Thank you Joe for being so insightful on this topic. You have touched on topics within fear, that we all hide and you have brought them out in the open. We can not have our heads buried in the sand…we need to face our “FEARS” and not let it take over our lives. (I remember your gremlin story in Chicago.) You have helped us do that. Thank you for being so open about it!
