I find these numbers so interesting. It creates the right picture in my mind, meaning - I know what I'm up against and I have a greater appreciation for why it takes so long to get a response.

Quite a wake-up call, but I'm not discouraged. I am up for the challenge of creating something of substance that will capture your attention.
