Dear Jack,

You have a wonderful writing style, & I have enjoyed reading this essay tremendously.

I am also honestly jealous. I have never had a vision, a waking dream, an awakening of any kind. I would love to believe, but it seems faith is not part of my being.

But I will see vicariously through you — thank you for sharing.
