A letter from a patient

As I have written before when I read your material I sense the polarity of the pilot vs the pirate. The pilot wanting exact metric readings and weather forecast in order to land this jumbo jet vs. the pirate who licks his fingers to feel which way the wind is blowing in order to set sails. Same courageous nobility just different hats! I sense via your writings that the thrill of the roller coaster, with all its mystery of unseen twist and turns has slowed into the day in and day out of the merry go round. Of course the merry-go-round offers a better view on life than the roller coaster. However no one wants to exchange the on your toes awareness  the roller coaster requires for the comfort of the mechanical rotation of the merry-go-round. I hope you continue to get both. My prayer for you is that you always have ample supplies in your arsenal. Supply list: humor (lots of it), lust for life (always surprises terrorist), planning (align soldiers to prepare for mass annihilation), attitude (CLL doesn't have a chance), Love of family (fabric of fight), spiritual guidance (top soldier),  ocean (humility in the face of real power),  and lastly get lost in the music (every soldier needs to be replinished). Dr. Koffman, if you have any of these than battle on! You are ready for any fight.  

I am so lucky to have some one like this in my life. Being a doctor has to be the best job in the world.  My patients give me so much. I am so blessed.

Thank you. Thank you all.
