    It took me a few days to get to read this, but it's a great credit to Adam to have been able to integrate all these lessons and facets of himself. As one of his former supervisors at Porter Wright, I've always admired him. As John Lennon once said, "Life is what happens while you're planning otherwise." Still true.
