talented people

when you find yourself surrounded by obscenely talented people on a regular basis, it can be a little daunting (unless of course you are just as if not more talented they are) which i am certainly not. but it is also very educational and gratifying when you get to reflect on how lucky you are. one positive thing i have noticed during this recession is the dearth of talented people who are no longer shackled to their cubicle and have finally let that talent loose on the world. so, without further adieu here are just a few of my most favorite talented people. enjoy!
the dixons: haig, hazel, steve, & cheryl
i was going to put a picture of steve alone since he's the focus, but i came across this one. steves beloved mother hazel passed away recently. she was an amazing woman that always watched out for "her boys"

Hi Mike, I just re-read your April blog and I second the motion that you should count yourself among the talented people. I'm continually amazed and pleasantly surprised at how talented Steven is (not because I'm his Dad) and at the number of amazingly talented friends he has and continues to maintain the friendship. I'm also reminded that it is almost one year ago that you provided that very elegant celebration for Hazel. Thank you and your staff once again.
Hope you have nothing but success.
