Thumbs Up or The Lions

About a dozen years ago, I wrote an article for a great magazine, Contributions.  
I called the article, THUMBS UP . . . OR THE LIONS?

I was going through some old files the other day and discovered the piece.  
I think you might enjoy it.

Today, if I were to use it for publication, I would do some editing. But I’m going to send it to you unabridged, just as I wrote it then.

It’s about my asking for a gift of $50 million— and what happened.

Along the way, I write about: Believe in miracles, Don’t be afraid to fail, It’s more an art than a science, and Along the way have fun.

It will take about 15 minutes to read the piece. If you would like to read it, you can download it here.
