The following article is in today's Traverse City Record Eagle. After attending Thursday night's Manistee City Planning Commission meeting, I (re)learned some very important lessons:
*Never be so smug as to assume you know what the outcome will be.
*Always give people the benefit of the doubt (Mom was right), they may just surprise you.
*Expect the unexpected, and be grateful for it
*Roller Coaster rides, while terrifying, can be really fun and exhilarating
*Patience and perseverance are two really important virtues
*Always remember: it ain't over til it's over
