Thank you!

>> I like this poem, <<

I'm happy to hear that.

>> and Damask as a character and family is definitely one of my favorites right now. <<

Yay! You can always ask for more about your favorites.

>> I live in a university town, though I probably don't need a lot of foundational classes anymore, and I think this one is relevant to a lot of folks who feel like they just aren't prepared for life. <<

Yes, that's true. Never stop learning. If you come across something you need to know that's new, you can always pick it up at the time.

>> Even if you aren't in formal schooling, learning how to choose a direction for yourself is important, <<

Some people are good at self-directed learning; I always have been. Other folks really need someone else to help them keep their focus. But you should at least be able to figure out what you like, are good at, and want to do.

>>and there are a lot of options available now for learning related things.<<

True. I love this. I think the universities are shooting themselves in the foot by raising prices and cutting services. People will figure out they don't need the paper, just the skills. All it's waiting for is business owners to hire on that basis.

It's great that so much information is more readily available now. I like being able to link to relevant resources when I'm writing something that touches on real-world topics.
