Nothing is Harder
All that I write has a purpose; some is more significant to me than others. Some I believe will be found more significant to some than others will find it. This portion does not apply equally to everyone. Some of you have other issues, other circumstances and controlling forces to deal with. For those who do qualify, this may be a storehouse of the greatest treasure you will ever open. Few people in this life will see what you see and even fewer will understand its immense impact and extremely few will possess it as a reality. Sadly the most common outcome if you are able to grasp it is that you will most probably glimpse it and let it slide from your hold. I do not intend this as a false build up of great expectations to a pathetically disappointing collapse.

It seems he always could find a solution when a challenge presented itself. He had clever ideas and was able to put things together and make them happen.
