"I think there is a kind of desperate hope built into poetry.....One is trying to say everything that can be said for the things that one loves while there's still time."

Had to add this photo of our "new" kitchen table courtesy of V&J. (another pilfering incident) I love it. Reed and I feel that we are sitting at the "children's" table - keeps us acting young.

Jim, Jeffrey, Carl and Sam Dillon brought the manpower and energy on Saturday to install new nursery grade plastic on the solar kiln. Reed assisted while I photographed, mowed the lawn and caught up on all the latest movie reviews from Jeff. (BTW Jeff, we watched "Hot Fuzz" Saturday night and enjoyed it. The first half made Reed a little nervous as it reminded him of where he once worked in Sheboygan.) We ended the evening with a fantastic fire - provided by all of Jeff and Carl's hard work. Thanks!

Mother is safely home from her adventure in the hospital. She and Donna are both tired but happy with the outcome.
Geoff had 1/3 of an unrepairable cartilage removed in his knee. The prognosis is good. He was even walking on it last night. Way to go, Geoff!!

And then there's Geoff. Geoff goes in for knee surgery today. He faces recovery, rehab and hard work to reach his goals. I am confident that with the love of his family, the support of his friends and most importantly, Geoff's own inner strength he will succeed.
I am very fortunate indeed to be surrounded by so many inspirational fighters.
