Thank you for being patient with me... There were many more aspects studied than only curiosity in our project... Actually, the impact of curiosity on the project was a delightful surprise... We found it wonderful to induce curiosity instead of, lets say, inducing progress via coercion... Curiosity also fit best in our niave model (presupposition), since the respondent then went where they wanted to go; they would better own their recovery... Success in recovery would be theirs, not ours...

Regarding "Outcome Thinking", the book, "The Aesthetic View", isn't finished... The author, and my long time friend and mentor, David Peck, passed away this past May, having finished only three chapters... I make no secret that I have picked up the torch and carrying it as fast and as high as I can... Although I have the "roughs" of the first three chapters, partly out of respect and partly out of my unique perspective, I choose to honor him every chance I get, and not mess with his book...

I feel I have been given a gift by this man, by my association over the last 29 years... I feel some of the gift is relevant to the issues herein... I feel I would be a toad if I didn't want to share something given me so freely... You and I are, in a sense, together on a journey of separate discovery, but with a potential of mutually beneficial outcomes...

I'm not ignorant, just naive... Tell me when I'm wasting your time and I'll figure out how to tighten up my end...
