You were certainly led in the right direction with Gente di Mare! The difference between desiring something and attaining it comes down simply to choice--and what a choice you, and everyone else on the "team" made by giving birth to Gente! There's always risks involved (ain't that true about life?), but they are certainly worth taking. I'm one of those folks who believe things are meant to happen--there are no coincidences. What a wonderful confluence of like-minded people.
So, as a newbie, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to all of you who make Gente such a warm, welcoming place--and this includes all members. I hope I can be of service in the future.
