John Tidridge was reading the novel,The Shack by Wm. Paul Young and came across this 'Author Unknown' quote,

"Growth means change
and involves risk,
stepping from the known
to the unknown".

Changes should not be made for change sake, but there is perhaps a need for John Tidridge to make his mark on this site. What changes are pending?
