So far, everything I hoped for in this life has been granted me on a platter,
even if it was not apparent at the time.
opportunity, freedom, skill,
knowledge, friendship and that little steel cast torch that feels good in my hand.
I will never be able to repay the debt, no matter how hard I try,
but I want to use what I have been given to express my gratitude.
Give me tea,
give me coffee,
give me bread,
give me an office...
...that I may work and learn,
learn and work,
learn and learn,
work and work.
A permanently unbroken internet connection would also be nice...
...and a good stationary shop.
