My fears, depression and uncharacteristic self pity about the derailment of Project Pater were unfounded. The above-pictured Monsieur Rock has graciously allowed me to reschedule my visit to the monastery.
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
Then you will be a brewer my son.
