  1. Mature observation, Rachel. All the more so because your words, spare and powerful, deliver a surprising twist.

    Fortunately, the story still thrives. While we may regret our past abandonments (I know I do), and it now is too late for many of those we spurned, past mistakes inspire only future improvements, do they not?

  2. Definitely Rachel, a concern worth contemplation.
