I kinda had a feeling an announcement like this was coming. ;)

I'm in total agreement with you in terms of a business like this being an anchor for the community, especially one such as ours which is large enough in its own right to support such an enterprise, plus serving as a beacon for hundreds of miles around. Some might argue with me on the ability of the community to support such a business long-term. I'd be happy to take them on in that argument - I've been an interested observer for over 15 years and I've helped manage a business (several, actually). It's a matter of business model and setting the right tone in the community (i.e. your customers). That's not the easiest thing to do in the Midwest, which has always reminded me of something of a really big junior high school cafeteria. But if anyone can navigate the crazy currents, it'd be you three. ;)

You definitely don't want to look back on anything and think "I wish I had tried." Hindsight's always 20/20, but based on that experience, I've come to the conclusion that it is better to live in the now. The past is the past and the future is what you make of it. You're going with your passion. The best kind of work is the kind that doesn't seem like it at all.

And don't knock failure. There are times I think it's more valuable experience than success. If we always succeed, what is there to look forward to? Life would be awfully boring. It's not the destination - it's the path. To put it another way - it's not about the mind-blowing orgasm - it's about how you got there. ;)

I'm excited for the three of you and cannot wait to see what comes of this jump off the cliff. Being the garden-variety Buddha, y'all are always welcome to rub my tummy and ask for advice. Or you can just rub my tummy for the hell of it. ;)
