My favorite quote from the conversation: "From it all, and also from my years as a student at The Peddie School, the single most poignant lesson I learned involved respect. Respect for history. The people before me. The processes they employed to get to where they were. Dismiss nothing. When you know nothing, you have to be completely open. Over time, what you allow to sink in becomes your way. From the masters at school and also the staff in southeast London, the lesson for me was clear, if I wanted some of what these people had, I couldn't go around them, I had to go through them."
It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that certain je ne sais quoi.

fiamme red…thanks for the post.

Interesting to say the least, reading some of the comments from the nameless and faceless in an age of online trolling and bullying, being directed at people that either they haven’t met or won’t meet.
