Hello all -

I am a long-time lurker as well. I have learned so much from this list 
and have the utmost respect for all of the members, some of whom I am 
fortunate enough to know personally. The list has helped me to explore 
more in-depth subjects I am already familiar with, and to learn of 
practices and theories which are new to me.
