Ok, I'm sure I'm going to leave someone out. I apologize, and I love every single one of you. So much magic, and so much love in those woods. After the first one, in no particular order: First and foremost, china cat. Dear friend. Sweet, kind, keeper of my heart. Teacher. Inspiration. Fox. The moments we shared (you know the ones) were unlike any others I've had in my not so short, not so dull trip through life. I look forward to having them again next year. Yup. I said that. In front of all of these people. So, you know, stick around and don't make me look like a dumbass. I love you deeply, and with abandon
Thank you, Tim. Once again, your loving kindness humbles me. There were so many moments--I know each of which you speak. Thank you for making it one of the best weekends of my life.
Sharing many thanks to family members who contributed to the joy:
J-Lee: It was so nice to meet you. You have a peaceful vibe and a kind spirit. And, I can't thank you enough, You know why.
JP and Karen: What a gift it was to all of us to have you drive all that way. You positive energy, good-heartedness, and sillies kept us all in good spirits. Thank you. AND I got to fondle Karen's boobs!
