Hi everyone, sorry it’s been so long since I last wrote. Unfortunately, we had a personal tragedy occur among our inventing group here in Colorado this past May and it’s taken all of our energy and talent to keep things moving along without letting any of the balls drop to the ground.
You see, in May, without any warning whatsoever, Anne Feiler, my dedicated assistant and very good friend, suddenly passed away. In at least one sense, it seemed to me that writing the next blog entry would be some sort of admission (to myself) that she was really gone. So, of course, the last thing I wanted to do was to write that next blog.
However, the really amazing thing was, that at her funeral, virtually the entire local inventing community turned out to say goodbye. In fact, one of my most accomplished serial inventors was beside himself with grief, and inconsolable. It was a very touching tribute to Anne and it reminded me again of the important work we do here, and of the difference we make in the lives of so many inventors …. RIP, Anne, dear friend, RIP ….
