"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

To my friends and family


Sometimes we just have to believe
that someone, somewhere
is in control.
Then
we pray,
for a life free of illness to return
for a while
surrounded by sureness,
warm blankets
and dogs.

( My sister had a 5 hour operation to remove a tumor from the frontal lobe of her brain this morning. She is in recovery and doing well. I thank everyone for all the kind thoughts and prayers that you emailed and phoned to me. I'm so touched by the goodness of the human heart.)
