2015 & 2016 FELLOWS IN AUSTIN
"We thought the attached photo captured the essence of [John's] talk. We literally ran into a roadblock along the path. Had we decided to traverse the roadblock, a broken bridge awaited us about another 500 feet ahead. Rest assured that the essence and spirit of LCLD pumped throughout our veins that morning. And but for the desire to show up to the next morning session in a timely manner, we were all full prepared to take the roadblock (and bridge)!"
