This page intentionally left blank!

Well, almost.

I was wise last week. I promised you nothing for this week. I shall do my best to deliver.

But I did say that I would reveal the result of my experiment. So, there goes the blank page!

And the answer to my experiment is: No one. That is, no one said anything when I skipped the week.

But some people did notice. In fact one person noticed it and acted on it to reach out to me. Only she didn’t tell me this was a trigger for her action until I asked for feedback last week!

But the most impressive were the responses I got from folks who wrote and said they had completely missed the missing missive until the next one arrived, alerting them of such absence. That took guts to say, but I greatly appreciate the honesty. I expected no one to have noticed, so it’s all good.

But it was very nice to know that some did notice. Enough people did, so I feel elated!

Last week I had said “[I] will take it easy until the end of May. Next real issue will be on June 2.

I think I will keep my word. See you next week!

P.S. You must admit, while this is not a blank page literally, it approaches it in substance.

P.P.S Have a good Memorial Day Weekend!
