Don’t cry, old friend. You’ve got it all now, and what matters most is that you got it on your own terms. You have the applause and the devotion and the admiration and the respect and the smile of the world - and you never sought it. You have sought only excellence in all things, including yourself. Needless to add, Kate, I love you. And for the sake of what’s left of the human race, I hope you live forever. What the hell. You already have. Love to Spence. Sincerely Yours.
