Davy, my heart is heavy after seeing the news of this latest tragedy…I thought of you right away, almost emailed you to make sure you were alright. I hope you’ve not lost friends, loved ones–and I can think of no appropriate words to convey my sympathy and grief for another senseless loss. Please know that my prayers are among the many lifted for all your people–the world becomes one, without borders, as we wrap our hearts around everyone in sorrow. love, miss muzzy (take as much time off as you need, from driving–I’m not going anywhere right away πŸ™‚ )

You’re welcome, Davy D. Thank you for such a wonderful blog, one that brings out the best in all of us. I included an additional poem of yours in today’s Surferbird, too. At some point between now and 6 a.m. California time, my site will be down, though. My hosting company has some maintenance to do.
