Until next week,
Yours with much love always

Oh this platform drives me crazy. I had left you a long comment but the gist of it is you’re amazing and i love you for your selflessness in a time of immense difficulty but I suppose the familiar gives us a sense of security in situations we cannot control. I am praying for your dad and hold him in healing white light to cradle him and give him all the love I can to get well. I cannot imagine how scared he is except for my own hours alone in the hospital waiting waiting waiting. The hospital scares me. And Covid is real. And thank god we have a compassionate and intelligent pair coming to take the reigns of the US to right the wrongs of that idiot who led people to believe it’s a China virus and not to wear masks – he who has recovered from it himself! And I know the unfortunate truth is how goes the US so goes the west.
I love you Marie. Thank you thank you and I am with you in spirit.
Thank you so much Ilene – I know you understand the fear and isolation of being alone in hospital. And yes, this virus is very real and also we share your relief this side of the pond that change is coming in the US in the form of an Irish man no less!
