I took apples, philosophy, and technical news, and we rested in the silences between topics. The visit was followed by departure the next week. The obituary was a collective effort. Wrenching at times, but I remain and need to speak on behalf of those who cannot. Meanwhile a family member (who was unconditionally accepting) and a childhood friend also departed. I have never felt more alive and vital. A puddle of sorrow and enlivened beyond measure.

I still need to complete a correspondence as a tribute to a friend, whose dimension continues to expand as I converse with acquaintances. A series of vivid dreams has stimulated my imagination and sharpened my senses to an acute level. Meanwhile I continue a weekly vigil to another friend. Although this activity is uncertain with regard to call and response, I take the time needed, knowing that this is very precious and rare time, and I honor my promises.
