You have now arrived at virtually the same place I was when, having read the penultimate drafts from the contributors, I paced the floor searching for what I might say to you. During this book’s development, months went by where thoughts about what I had agreed to do were banished from consciousness. Finally, with all the drafts before me and a “While You Were Out” phone message from Ken Solomon on my desk, I either had to say something to you or quit. Finding myself uncharacteristically decidophobic, I needed help. Support for either side of my ambivalence was clearly in order. So I called Ken and explained. The direction of his encouragement is obvious. With expected humanistic understanding, Ken, having read previously written portions of this epilogue, urged me to persist.
