First of all, I need to thank the obvious parties here. Heather Finlayson, Alison and Arni Mikelsons for designing and formatting this website. They have all been extremely patient and courteous, professional and generous. And I'm going to take the liberty of putting a plug in for them here. Heather (such a wonderful person, by the way), runs her own design company and can be seen at www.merenamedesign.com and you can reach her at email@example.com.
Alison Mikelsons is the daughter of Arni Mikelsons, who is the founder of Northern Village. This is a fantastic company that provides websites that are updated easily, even for techno-phobes such as myself. They come highly recommended. http://www.northernvillage.com/home/. Both Arni and Alison have been VERY generous with their time and have been incredibly patient with me. Thanks guys, for getting this site up and running!
And then there's Jason Lewis. Where exactly do I start? The happenstance meeting between Jason and myself was a product of sheer luck. Jason's actions have encouraged me to believe in altruism. He began helping me as a virtual stranger. He has urged me on, fanning the flames under the cauldron of creative progress. And Jason also had the litho reproductions of my work made for me which are available through this website. It would have cost me a small fortune to have them produced. Jason Lewis, using the leverage of his position as the CEO of Pharmacomm and of Cortex Group Inc., not only had the posters made, but made sure they were of the highest quality. Oh, and he managed to secure my domain name as well. So. Thank you so much, Jason. And thanks as well to his wife, Paula Power for encouraging Jason to meet me and to see my work. I can't even guess as to how much time you've saved me.
Shall I go on? I have parents of course. And yes, they too deserve a huge amount of credit. They have known for years (decades, actually) that they were never going to be reimbursed with grandchildren. Nevertheless, the amount of encouragement they've given me, among many other things (the list is too long), is far from trivial. George and Joan Caesar - thank you so much.
