“Using your fingers, try to make a capital A with your hand and two lowercase l’s with the other hand. You should get the same thing, one upside down; the other right side up. It spells out “All” which symbolizes the importance of executing the short steps to accomplish long-term goals, and treating them with the same intensity and focus. We choose to deliver this message through feeling this time. Used the vibes as the main concentration.” – Mark Steele
