I had another post prepared for today, but a friend has been struck by tragedy and I find that I just can't ignore that.
Frequently when disaster knocks on the door, the very best in our neighbors and friends comes out of hiding. I am so proud of the generous spirit of my fellow writers, editors, and other co-workers.
Will their generosity reverse the disaster that has befallen our friend? No, but hopefully it will ease the terrible burdens set upon her. Our prayers and thoughts are with you, M and family.
