My Love Letter To Kaiser Permanente La Mesa's Solar Panels

To The Newest Object Of My Affection,

Looking up to you
I am writing to offer you my deepest apologies. I have been in your presence multiple times recently, and yet I've been so blind to your existence. It wasn't until someone opened my eyes to you (my thanks go to @karenpearlman) that I was finally able to see what has been right before me all of this time.

Today, when I approached you, I finally saw you in a whole new light. I stood humbly in your shadow, looking up to you as you so rightly deserve. Despite me having taken advantage of you in the past, you continue to stand strong, protecting me and even helping me keep my cool.

Don't think that I didn't like you at all to begin with. When you first arrived, I thought you were a nice enough addition. I could see right away how skillfully you might serve to take the heat off of me and countless others. The thing is, I never looked close enough to see all that you have to offer. In fact, and in my defense, try looking at things from my perspective. If I had been able to step back and get a better view of you from above, it would've been hard to miss seeing you for what you are. But, from where I stand, it is hard to get the full picture.

Standing in your shadow
Luckily, now I am able to see the complete package, and I must say that I am quite impressed by your versatility. As well put together as you seem upon first glance, I am honestly most taken by what lies beneath the the surface. Now that I know what you are accomplishing, I stand in complete awe of your humble productivity. Your efficiency is a quality that I highly admire, and it is one I wish others would try to emulate more often. 

The banner...it all makes sense now!
I think you are a shining example, and I have high hopes that you will prove to be a leader for others. Please remember that there are people out here who appreciate the work you're doing, even though not everyone may be aware of all that you do.

Love from your new admirer,
El Cajon Mama

  1. Sounds so good when you say "Despite me having taken advantage of you in the past, you continue to stand strong, protecting me and even helping me keep my cool."
