    You sure captured this moment well, Cyndi-- I see that you won with this, so congrats to you! I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been well-- do get your rest, ok? I do drop by here and there, but yes, not as much as before, been occupied with some other things lately-- I haven't written as much lately anyhow but yes, today is special, so I came up with something for Andrea...also want to remind you it's her birthday today, Sept 5 :). Have a great week, and do hug Verity for me as well!

    What can be said about your descriptives on this heart rending scene -- bland casket, touched shifting light, a frail nomad. If I go on, I'll be reprinting every word. You are a true poet, richly blessed with language and sensitivity. love, Kathy

    Yes, I wept, no I bawled, when my father died...this man of stature and words was silenced as he slept, silently. I do know the feeling. Compelling write. Congrats. One love. Joy Wells.

    A tender and soulful write, Cyndi. Quiet tears for your father, I'm sure he was there with you and also silently wept. Best wishes, Mikki

    This is sad and yet beautiful Cyndi, that surreal moment where sometimes silence is all that is needed. Hope your day is a great one ;)
