Although it was nearly midnight, and I was feeling pretty drowsy, with only one more chapter to go I just had to finish the book. I was glad I did, as the last two sentences at the end of the book provided me with just the right inspiration to fall asleep quickly and get myself fully re-energized for the following day of exciting challenges.

"With a balanced time perspective that learns from the past, draws energy and emotion from the present, and is guided by a clear vision for the future, each of us as individuals and all of us as a world can accomplish great things. Our hope for the future includes a balance and harmony of the past, present and future; of thinking and feeling; of people and nature; and an abundance of happiness and health for all."

The Time Paradox by Philip Zimbardo and John Boyd.

Every once in awhile, another Kiffin somehow happens to find me via the Internet and contacts me. Here is a message that Kiffin Tomasson left me the other day:

hey just saw your site, and thought id let
you know that i am also named after kiffin
yates rockwell and just so happen to also
be a pilot. i have a video of me flying and my
cousin recording an aerobatic video. check it
out if u want

When I was a kid, I always wondered if there were any other Kiffins in the world, or perhaps a twin Kiffin on another planet Earth revolving exactly on the other side of the sun.
