a note from Tu Bears – Constructing a connecting link across a land that has been there forever is like figuring out our reason for being human. It may take lifetimes of trial and error, searching this pathway, rummaging through that box of books, rambling over millions of concepts and ideas, digging up old relics of historical data, and still wondering what the heck we are doing here. Our personal puzzle cannot be solved if half of our pieces are still tucked away in secret hiding places. Be brave, invoke the unknown, stretch beyond imagination, and live with ultimate abandon.
