sordak and I received a card in the mail today, with a San Francisco cancellation stamp, simply signed "From a friend in The West. You are missed." Enclosed were five $20 bills.
This largesse comes at a time when it is both needed and very welcome. To say I am stunned is an understatement. The last few years have been very difficult and I had lost much faith in the basic goodness of people. This has done much to restore that faith.
There have been a few people in our new land of Artemisia, especially in the Barony of Arn Hold, who have helped us, and shored us up emotionally, in the last several months. I also wish to thank them.
Maybe the light at the end of the tunnel isn't an oncoming train.
