There is no logical reason why people take on impossible challenges. Let me explain. The fact that something is impossible – and yet you achieve it – proves that it was indeed possible. It wasn’t impossible after all. So, one asks, why take on something that we know is possible and we know we can do it? What’s the point? I guess we do it because we know that for OTHER people it would be possible. The trick in life is to fail at nothing. To do that, most people take the easy route. But that’s not what sets you, Jon Smith, apart from the rest of us. David Longman

I guess we do it because we know that for OTHER people it would be IMPOSSIBLE. The trick in life is to fail at nothing. To do that, most people take the easy route.

Hi Jon. Let me know when Alex comes to California and let’s see if we can fit him with a Follea “Gripper” natural hair wig (no charge of course). I don’t know enough to know if he will be able to tolerate anything on his head, and he’s a bit young for a wig, but we have designed a special wig for children (and adults) with no hair, that requires no tape or glue but fits securely.

Congratulations again on the Polar Run Awesome.

All the best. Michael.
